Garcia, who had scored the opening goal of the game on nine minutes, had to be replaced after 41 minutes of the clash.

It is understood Garcia will have scans done on the injured knee to ascertain the damage in the next few days.

The 29-year-old Socceroo had missed Australia's 2011 AFC Asian Cup campaign after undergoing surgery on a knee injury.

It is feared Garcia could miss the rest of Hull's season as they push for a place in the play-offs.

Garcia has made 22 appearances for the Tigers this term.
