Hull City's Liam Rosenior lauds Ryan Longman - a month on from his criticism from fans
Back on October 10, Longman was subjected to brief chants of 'You're not fit to wear the shirt' from some Tigers followers in the game at Huddersfield Town.
He said: "Obviously I have known Ryan a long time. He's a great kid and wants to learn and improve. He is another player I am really excited to work with.
"What I love about Ryan is that he is so unselfish. If the team wins, he is happy for the team and he was unlucky not to score with the header on Saturday.
"He stretches the game for us and runs in behind and creates for our number tens and it was a fantastic assist for Regan's (Slater's) second goal at Cardiff.
"He will be a big part for us moving forward.”
City have failed in their appeal to have Oscar Estupinan's three-match ban at Millwall reduced to one match - and the Tigers top-scorer will now not be available again until December 17.
The Colombian received his marching orders after catching Lions defender Charlie Cresswell in the face with a stray boot.
Referee John Busby's report confirmed that Estupinan was sent off for violent conduct which came with a mandatory three-game suspension.
Rosenior added: “I do understand their decision. Obviously, I am a little bit disappointed in it. It is a shame he is not available, but we have a good enough squad to get by."
