​Hull City midfielder Robert Snodgrass has been ruled out of action for the next four weeks, as reported by the club's official Twitter account.

Scans confirmed that the player suffered ankle ligament damage during the Tigers' clash against Stoke City on Saturday.

This comes as a huge blow to Mike Phelan, who had his team firing on all cylinders with a skeleton staff at the beginning of the season, but is now struggling to find form within his squad.

Snodgrass is one of the best players at Hull right now, and is definitely the most creative, despite not making any assists so far this term. He does have four goals to his name, however.

The 29-year old is set to miss the EFL Cup tie against Bristol City, and is also ruled out for Premier League matches against Watford, Southampton and Sunderland. He could also miss Scotland's World Cup Qualifying match against England on November 11.
