Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone is to be sidelined for up to six weeks because of the recurrence of a hamstring injury.

The 34-year-old was forced off after half an hour during his return to the Tigers’ starting line-up against Peterborough.

Manager Grant McCann told the club website: “It’s a recurrence of the hamstring injury in a different area.

“None of us could foresee what was going to happen and how this was going to come about. We’ll see how he recovers but we’re probably looking at a timescale of four to six weeks.

“It gives him another opportunity to go and work physically in the gym.”
