Hunt in line for weekend return

BY foxsports • March 23, 2010

The 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international, one of the club's most consistent players this season, has not featured since the 3-0 Premier League loss to West Ham on February 20 due to a foot injury. In his absence, the struggling Tigers' losing run has been extended to five successive defeats and manager Phil Brown was sacked last week. They are now 19th in the table, three points adrift of safety and with just eight games to get out of trouble. New manager Iain Dowie told the club's website: "He's got a little bit of pain shooting through his foot but we're hopeful. "He trained a little bit today and we'll see how he reacts overnight." Striker Jozy Altidore, who missed last weekend's defeat at Portsmouth with a hamstring injury, could also be fit to return. Amr Zaki, however, is likely to be out for another week after jarring his knee in training.
