Robert Koren Is Not Being Dumped For Egyptian Gedo

Hull City skipper Robert Koren is being reassured he is not being sacrificed to make way for Egyptian wonder Gedo.
Koren was left out of the 1-0 defeat of Charlton on Saturday with Gedo taking his shirt and scoring.
That came just days after Gedo replaced Koren from off  the bench to net his first for the Tigers.
But boss Steve Bruce insists Koren is still key to his plans and will use him against Blackburn tonight.
He said: "It’s quite simple really, Robbie Koren has played as much as anyone this season.
"Statistics tell me over the last couple of games that fatigue has set in a little bit and we needed to freshen him up.
"You can’t play to a level in this league and expect to play well every game, especially when you’re a forward who needs a bit of energy.
"Sometimes a rest is just what you need and he’ll come back into my plans for Blackburn.”
Slovenia Koren, 31, has scored seven times in his 29 starts this term.
Gedo joined Hull on deadline day from Al Ahly on loan for the rest of the season and has made an instant impact with two goals in three gam
