SOCCEROO Richard Garcia appears set to be fit for Hull City's push for the promotion play-offs despite being stretchered off in the weekend's 3-1 win over Doncaster Rovers.
Garcia had scored in the game after nine minutes before having to be replaced prior to the break on a stretcher due to a knee injury.
Tigers officials had feared the injury would sideline the Australian for the remainder of the campaign as they continue their bid to make the play-offs.
But it seems Garcia's injury isn't serious and he could be available to play in Hull's Easter weekend double fixture against Middlesbrough and QPR after he tweeted positive news.
“Thanks for all the well wishes, all is good, just tweaked my knee. No drama,” Garcia tweeted.
Hull boss Nigel Pearson had been hopeful on good news on Garcia's injury after recent good form from the Socceroo who was making his first start since December.
“We’ll just have to see how it is, hopefully it’s not too bad,” Pearson said after the win over Doncaster.
“He’s had to be really patient to wait for his opportunity. He did really well when he came on as a substitute at Swansea and the thinking was to start with the same side that finished well at Swansea.”
Hull are currently eighth in England's Championship, two points behind sixth-placed Leeds.
