Hull striker Tom Eaves missing against Leeds after being ruled out for season

Hull striker Tom Eaves has been ruled out of Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Leeds after being told his season is over.

The 28-year-old suffered ankle ligament damage in last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at Preston and has been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign, joining Eric Lichaj and Herbie Kane on the sidelines with similar issues.

Head coach Grant McCann, who will have loanee Mallik Wilks available once again after he was ineligible to play against parent club Barnsley in midweek, is also awaiting news on casualties from the 1-0 defeat by the Tykes.

With fellow defender Reece Burke (calf) already ruled out, Jon Toral suffered a hamstring injury and Jordy De Wijs hobbled off with a damaged calf muscle, and all three are being assessed.

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa will play a waiting game with midfielder Kalvin Phillips after he missed Wednesday night’s 1-0 win at Middlesbrough with the injury which forced his first-half exit from Saturday’s victory over Reading.

Phillips had been expected to be available at the Riverside Stadium, but was ruled out on the morning of the match and Bielsa will take no chances with him.

Striker Jean-Kevin Augustin also sat out the trip to Teesside with a hamstring problem and will do so once again.

Meanwhile, midfielder Adam Forshaw will miss the rest of the season after undergoing hip surgery.
