Hull City striker Sone Aluko not ready for return
Hull City’s top goalscorer Sone Aluko is losing his battle to make a comeback from injury next week, despite making a return to light training.
After missing their attacking talisman for the last four weeks with an Achilles injury, the Tigers had been cautiously optimistic that Aluko would be able to play some part either in next Tuesday’s home game with Blackburn or the trip to Bolton a week tomorrow.
However, any hopes of featuring against Blackburn are now rated as “extremely unlikely” following a training session back in the first-team fold on Thursday.
City’s medical staff are loath to push Aluko’s recovery and see a recurrence of the injury aggravated last month, and a more realistic target may be a reunion with boyhood club Birmingham City on March 2.

“Sone did a little bit on the grass with us but it still looks a way off,” Bruce told the Mail.
“We’ll see how it is but it wasn’t great on the evidence of yesterday.
“There’s certainly no chance for Saturday and unless something changes remarkably over the weekend, I would say Tuesday was extremely unlikely unfortunately. It’s not the sort of injury you want to rush.”
