Hull City threat Sone Aluko set to miss the trip to Pride Park
HULL City could be without top scorer Sone Aluko when they visit Derby County in the Rams’ final match before Christmas.
Aluko, who has eight goals to his name this term, has been ruled out for a further “two to three weeks” with a troublesome Achilles problem.
This means he is set to miss the Tigers’ trip to Pride Park a week on Friday.
The Nigerian international has had an injection in a bid to clear up the injury but will now need a period of complete rest.

“He had an injection on Friday and we’re hoping that now he’s got five or six days off doing absolutely nothing,” said manager Steve Bruce.
“In two to three weeks, it will have done the trick and we’ll see Sone back again.
“We’ve played two games away from home without arguably our best player of the season and we’re hoping it’s not a bad one.
“The worry is that it’s the tendon but the scan has revealed that there is no real damage. We’ve put an injection in to try and release it.”
Derby travel to Bristol City on Saturday before taking on Hull in their final home match of 2012.
