Harry Wilson endured a tough Friday night as Hull City were knocked out of the FA Cup after a 4-0 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The Liverpool loanee, who started for the Tigers, had to be substituted in the second half after suffering a shoulder injury whilst winning a penalty – which was subsequently missed by David Meyler.
Wilson is now unlikely to feature in Tuesday’s Championship clash away to Middlesbrough and is set to undergo observation over the coming days.
“Harry will get assessed,” said Adkins. “We don’t suspect there’s a dislocation there but there’s damage of some description. It’s another worry (for Middlesbrough),” manager Nigel Adkins told Hull Daily Mail.
The Welshman sealed a deadline day move to the KCOM Stadium in search of regular first-team football following a superb start to the season for Liverpool’s U23s.
Wilson scored his first goal for his temporary employers last weekend as Hull won for the first time in 10 league outings to rise from the relegation zone.
Despite his early exit from the game, a start against Antonio Conte’s men marked valuable experience for a man who undoubtedly envisions a future among Premier League competition.
The 20-year-old has already made a positive impression for the struggling Yorkshire-club and could prove key in their fight to survive.
