Hull City are hoping injured striker Sone Aluko will return to first-team action before the end of the month.

Aluko, 23, was expected to be sidelined for up to eight weeks when scans revealed he had a slight tear in his Achilles tendon and manager Steve Bruce had written off February for the former Birmingham striker.

But Aluko, whose eight goals have helped propel Hull into automatic promotion contention following his release from Rangers and subsequent arrival at the KC Stadium in the summer, has not ruled out a comeback in the home game against Blackburn on February 19 or at Bolton the following Saturday.
