CAIRO: Hull City will once again miss Amr Zaki when they face Stoke City on Saturday as the Egyptian has yet to recover from injury.
Zaki sustained a knee injury in training two weeks ago and manager Iain Dowie has confirmed his unavailability for the weekend’s crucial clash.
"That’s going to run on a little bit because his knee hasn’t quite settled down yet," Dowie said in the Hull Daily Mail.
Hull face a tense battle against relegation as they aim to pop out of the bottom three at the expense of Mido’s West Ham, who visit Everton.
Hull and West Ham are tied on 27 points, but the Tigers have a game in hand.
