Hull City will be without Liam Rosenior, Andrew Robertson and Gaston Ramirez for several weeks after all three picked up injuries in the New Year's Day victory over Everton.
Defender Rosenior could be sidelined until late March after scans revealed a "significant" hamstring problem that rules him out for 10 to 12 weeks.
Full-back Robertson and on-loan forward Ramirez are out for four to six weeks.
Robertson has an ankle injury while Ramirez has a thigh problem.
The loss of Rosenior and Robertson leaves Tigers manager Steve Bruce light on the left side of defence, although Robbie Brady can operate there and Maynor Figueroa has been recalled from a loan spell at Wigan.
