Hull's DR Congo striker Dieumerci Mbokani will be sidelined for six weeks after suffering a hamstring injury, dealing a blow to their hopes of staying in the Premier League.

Mbokani will miss a significant chunk of Hull's battle for survival after being forced off in the second half of Saturday's 1-1 draw with Burnley.

"Dieumerci Mbokani is set to be out for six weeks after suffering a hamstring injury," Hull's website said.

Mbokani has yet to score in 12 appearances for second-bottom Hull since joining on loan from Dynamo Kiev until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old is in his second spell in England after playing for Norwich on loan when they were relegated from the top flight last season.
