Mannone: On loan from Arsenal

Mannone: On loan from Arsenal

Hull will check on the fitness of goalkeeper Vito Mannone ahead of the visit of Burnley.

The on-loan Arsenal stopper kept a clean sheet on his return to the side in the vital 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

But he aggravated a thigh injury - which sidelined him previously - during the game and is a doubt for the visit of the Clarets, who are one place and one point ahead of the Tigers.

Should Mannone be ruled out, the Tigers only have youngster Mark Oxley to call on with Matt Duke joining Derby on loan last week, although he could be recalled by manager Nigel Pearson.

New loan signing David Amoo made his debut as a second-half substitute at Forest and will now be pushing for a start.

Burnley manager Eddie Howe is short of strikers ahead of the trip to Hull.

Charlie Austin will undergo surgery on a dislocated shoulder this week and has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Fellow frontman Steven Thompson is sidelined for at least a month following a groin operation and with Martin Paterson also absent with a thigh injury, Howe has only Chris Iwelumo and Jay Rodriguez fit and available.

The Clarets boss is considering signing another forward on loan as he bids to maintain his side's play-off push.

However, assistant manager Jason Tindall said: "We've got a fantastic squad, we are short on numbers but the lads who are fit are very good players. Hopefully we won't get any more injuries."
