Hull full-back Andy Robertson is around a fortnight away from fitness, according to head coach Mike Phelan.

The 22-year-old Scotland international has not featured for the Tigers since injuring his calf in the 6-1 defeat by Bournemouth on October 15.

But he has started outdoor training again and should return to the first-team fold next month.

Hull have been short of senior cover on the left side of defence since Robertson was ruled out and handed a debut to 17-year-old Josh Tymon at Sunderland on Saturday.

"Andy is back outside now," said Phelan.

"He's doing work and preparation for being fit probably in two weeks' time. We have to be a little bit careful because calf injuries have a habit of reoccurring.

"They can sometimes lead you down the garden path a little bit thinking everything is great and then let you down, so we will be cautious.

"But he's willing and working hard, and we should have him back soon."
