Former Tottenham defender Michael Dawson has received a fitness boost, as he’s expected to join Hull City first-team squad this week.
Dawson has been restricted to 19 appearances in all competitions for Hull this season due to a calf injury, and has missed the Tigers’ last six matches.
The club confirmed on their official website: “Dawson hasn’t played since the 0-0 draw with Manchester United at the start of February, but is likely to be given the green light to join the rest of the first-team squad as they prepare for next Saturday’s home game against West Ham United.”
Meanwhile, the Tigers have confirmed goalkeeper David Marshall is likely to return to the squad in time for the visit of West Ham.
Marshall was withdrawn from international duty with Scotland last week due to a hip injury.
