Championship leaders Hull City suffer major injury blow

first_img Michael Dawson Hull captain Michael Dawson has been ruled out for up to a month with a hamstring injury.The former Tottenham star was forced off in the first half of Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Bristol City and is expected to be sidelined until the end of December.The loss of Dawson will come as a big blow to Steve Bruce, whose side are sitting top of the Championship following an impressive 11-match unbeaten run.Much of that success has been down to City’s sturdy defence – the best in the league having conceded just nine goals in 17 games.“Scans have confirmed that Michael Dawson sustained a grade two hamstring injury during Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Bristol City,” a statement on the club’s official website read.“The injury is expected to keep Dawson out of action for three to four weeks.”Dawson was already due to miss Friday’s match against Derby through suspension, which will keep out left-back Andrew Robertson.David Meyler faces eight weeks out due to a knee injury, while Adama Diomande and Robert Snodgrass have yet to feature this season. 1last_img
