Hull City are set to be handed a massive boost in their fight to save themselves from the agony of relegation to League One this season. The Tigers can now welcome back their Uruguayan striker Abel Hernandez after he returned to full training this week. The forward has been out of action with an injury for the past six months. He remains on course to give Hull City ’s survival chances a major boost by making his long-awaited return to first-team action in March.
Hernandez came back to full training for the first time in almost six months recently as he continues to inch closer to a first-team return. The 27-year-old has not featured for the Tigers since rupturing his Achilles in the 3-2 defeat at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers in August last year, an injury that has kept him out of commission for all but three of Hull’s 31 Championship matches this season. With fixtures coming thick and fast, he is set to miss further matches as he looks to come back to full fitness but there are growing expectations that the South American ace can complete his come back to the first-team ahead of the international break, which is exactly a month from now.
When asked to address Hernandez’s rehabilitation, Hull City boss Nigel Adkins was quoted to have said, “He trained with us (on Tuesday) for the first time,”
“We then have to see how he progresses.
“Maybe an under-23s game or a game at the training ground. The sooner we can get him involved the better. He has a World Cup to go to so he will want to be performing and playing.”
Hull City are currently in 21st place in the Skybet Championship standings with a tally of 29 points after 31 league matches. The Tigers are flirting with disaster and are just a point away from safety. Nigel Adkins’ side faces the possibility of suffering the agony of relegation to League One in the coming months so the return of Hernandez would give them a major lift as he would add goals to their side which might help them climb up the table and avoid the drop at the end of the campaign.
Hernandez has scored 34 goals and provided 8 assists in 103 appearances for the Tigers during his time at the KCOM Stadium. He has incredible pace and has a knack for scoring important goals which could help them in the relegation dogfight going into the final stretch of the season.
It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Hernandez and whether his return from injury would be enough to save the Tigers this term.
