Steve Bruce has confirmed that new signing Robert Snodgrass is set to miss at least six months after a scan revealed the midfielder dislocated his knee and damaged ligaments during the win over QPR.
The news comes as a devastating blow for the Scottish international who was hopeful of a return within 2/3 months; but a second battery of tests indicated the damage was far worse than first feared after his initial scan proved inconclusive. The Hull City squad is already stretched having to fight on two separate footballing fronts - Premier and the Europe League - and this latest development could force the Tigers coach back into the transfer market with only ten days of the window remaining.

Hull City's opening day victory at Loftus Road was tainted by the news that new signing Robert Snodgrass could be set for an extended spell on the side-lines.

Steve Bruce fears the worse after midfielder Robert Snodgrass was replaced just before half-time after failing to recover from a heavy Joey Barton tackle. The Tigers manager confirmed post-match that his new £7 million man twisted his knee in the challenge and will be sent for a scan to confirm the full extent of the damage. The injury adds to a growing list of concerns which include Liam Rosenior and Alex Bruce (both back); Hull City take on Lokeren from Belgium on Thursday in the Europa League.

Robert Snodgrass is another midfield recommendation in this week's player picks column.

Hull have completed some decent business over the summer, none more so then securing Snodgrass from relegated Norwich. The Scottish international looked a class apart last season and will be a constant danger from corners and free-kicks around the area. At a fantasy price of £7million it's hard to think of a reason not to pick him.

Hull City played a more attacking, midfield-centric line-up in their home Europa Cup win last night that featured a start for Robert Snodgrass.

High profile signing Robert Snodgrass started the second leg of Hull City's Europa Cup qualifying win over AS Trencin where he came in off the bench in the first leg. Given the fee paid for Snodgrass, the expectation will be that he will start far more frequently than he doesn't and this was no exception. It is newsworthy because he didn't start the previous match. As a pre-season bonus, Snodgrass started the move that yielded the winner for Hull City.

Hull City continue an aggressive summer transfer campaign with the signing of Norwich winger Robert Snodgrass.

While not all of their efforts have been successful, Hull City can't be accused of lacking for ambition on the heels of their FA Cup final appearance. The club has already made Jake Livermore's loan permanent and chased Jolene Lescott. Snodgrass continues the search for quality players with Premier League experience.

Steve Bruce's FA Cup runners up have been linked with a move for Norwich City attacking midfielder Robert Snodgrass.

With the Canaries being relegated it is inevitable that their better and more expensive players will be targets for transfer activity. With Hull City adding Europa Cup to their schedule next season they will need to expand their squad to prevent a step back in the league that they can't afford. Snodgrass would be a solid addition at the suggested price of £4million. He would help mitigate the expanded schedule as well as concern over a thin group of Premier League quality goalscorers.

Robert Snodgrass scored a late goal to give Norwich hope of a comeback but Norwich ended up losing 4-2.

Snodgrass scored in the 86th minute to bring Norwich within a goal of a tie but Southampton regrouped and scored a goal to win it 4-2. The other Norwich goal came from Johan Elmander. At the end, the only thing the Norwich goals did were give fans some hope for the future and ruin the day for many fantasy managers who had Artur Boruc in goal. Snodgrass is not to be trusted to contribute regularly.

Robert Snodgrass scored his fifth goal of the season as Norwich moved away from the relegation zone and dented Tottenham's top-four hopes.

The Norwich win was fully deserved as they showed more effort and more quality than their opponents. Snodgrass was the hero, scoring the solitary goal with a fine finish, and had it not been for a couple of good saves from Hugo Lloris it could've been a greater margin of victory. Bradley Johnson thundered a free-kick off the underside of the bar, while John Ruddy put in a solid performance in net, denying Emmanuel Adebayor and Nacer Chadli in the second half. Norwich move four points clear of the relegation zone while Spurs have a big six point gap to make up on 4th placed Liverpool.

Norwich City were held out by West Ham as they continue to struggle for goals and sink closer to the relegation zone in a 2-0 loss.

The drought for the Canaries has been going on too long and they need a spark somewhere fast lest they find themselves out of the top flight next season. Since a two goal effort against WBA back in early December, they have gone 11 matches of one goal or less, with the goals that have come occurring against the weakest of sides. In short, their squad is currently a fantasy wasteland with no dependable prospect, including last season's productive Robert Snodgrass, in sight. They will look for an answer when they host Spurs next time out.

Robert Snodgrass scored the opener for Norwich City, but the Canaries defense shut off for a few minutes in the second half, and it was all it took for Cardiff City to come back and win 2-1.

It has been a massively disappointing season for Snodgrass who, a year ago, was one of the more dependable midfielders in fantasy. It was a nice exchange between Martin Olsson, who delivered a low cross to the back post, and Snodgrass who finished, but without Snodgrass' typical production provided last year, the Canaries are a weak attacking unit as a whole. Hopefully, the goal will provide Snodgrass some confidence going forward, but it will take another positive performance before he returns to the radar.

Robert Snodgrass is back in the Norwich squad that travel to Sunderland.

Snodgrass has been out with a knee injury, and like Ricky Van Wolfswinkel, is fit enough to at least make the bench for the Canaries.

Robert Snodgrass could be fit in time to face Sunderland next weekend, according to manager, Chris Hughton.

Norwich City face a pretty decent run of matches, and could use Snodgrass' return to fitness, and hopefully form. In his stead, Nathan Redmond has looked good in a more involved role, and has been taking kicks for the Canaries.

Robert Snodgrass scored his first league goal of the season and it proved to be the game winner as Norwich City came from behind to defeat West Ham United 3-1.

With one swing of the leg, Snodgrass reminded fantasy managers of his scoring abilities which were showcased frequently last season. After the Canaries leveled the game at 1-1 on a Gary Hooper penalty conversion, a foul to the right of center beyond the 18 yard box was the perfect spot for Snodgrass to wield his powerful and accurate left foot, curling over the wall into the top right corner of net. Perhaps this game will kick start the Norwich attack, which had failed to score more than once in a game since opening weekend, and kick start Snodgrass as well.

Robert Snodgrass wasn't fit to face Manchester City after suffering a concussion the prior week. However, manager Chris Hughton announced that the Scottish winger is fine.

Nathan Redmond is still doubtful, so Norwich will be happy to have options on the wings. Snodgrass will come straight back into the side, opposite Anthony Pilkington.
