Hull midfielder David Meyler could be ruled out of next month’s Sky Bet Championship play-offs through injury.
The Republic of Ireland international has missed Hull’s last two games and is not expected to shake off a hamstring problem in time for the remaining fixtures against Bolton and Rotherham.
“David aggravated his hamstring against Reading last Tuesday, which is disappointing because he said he felt okay,” boss Steve Bruce told the club’s official website.
“It looks as though that has made it worse. He certainly won’t make it for Saturday against Bolton and I’d be doubtful about him making it for the Rotherham game, so that must make him a doubt for the play-offs.”
Meyler, 26, has made 33 appearances for the Tigers this season in all competitions.
