Injury boost for Tigers

Next Story

Hull wingers Cameron Stewart and Richard Garcia hope to be back in first-team action before the end of November.

Stewart, 20, signed permanently for an undisclosed fee from Manchester United in January, damaged knee ligaments at Ipswich in February and has targeted a return to the reserve team by the end of October.

Hull's head of medical services Chris Burton told the club's official website: "He'll probably be back doing non-contact training within the next couple of weeks."

Australia international Garcia, 30, has been out since April due to a cruciate ligament injury.

Burton added: "He's working towards being in the best shape he's ever been in and if we say the end of November, that's probably going to be a realistic goal for him.

"If we get anywhere before that it would be a big boost."

Meanwhile, defender Andy Dawson is expected to be sidelined for around six weeks after sustaining a medial ligament injury last week.
