Lewie Coyle has been ruled out for four to six weeks after tearing ligaments in his right shoulder, Grant McCann has confirmed.
The 25-year-old was withdrawn in the first half of the Tigers’ 1-0 win over AFC Wimbledon following a heavy collision with Steve Seddon.
McCann says the injury is not as bad as first feared and the right-back will not require an operation.
The boss also confirmed that Jordy de Wijs is back available after a bout of illness and James Scott has now returned to training.
Mallik Wilks, who was only fit to start on the bench against the Dons, has now fully recovered from illness.
