Alex Neil has given welcome positive news on the injury front as Josh Tymon made his Stoke City comeback in a win at hometown club Hull.
Tymon, aged 23, had missed five matches with ankle ligament damage and Stoke have struggled to fill his boots on the left. Neil had been coy about when he might return but his return at Hull gave the side a much better balance.
Stoke were 3-0 up by the time he had a long range shot deflected just wide about 20 minutes from time – and then had to be helped off by a physio, looking in pain as he hobbled to the touchline.

But Neil said: "He's not done huge amounts although he's only been out for three weeks. It was quite an intense game and he's only done a few days training so it was dropping him in at the deep end to a certain extent.
"It's nothing significant, just a bit of residual pain but nothing that's going to keep him out."
Tymon has been one of several key players missing over the last few weeks for Stoke and perhaps the one where the squad is least well prepared with cover.
Neil said: "I think when we get everyone available we've got some good options. Unfortunately since I've been here that's not been the case.
"What we've got to do is find a way of winning games with where we currently are and players that are fit.
"But as you could see there, provided we attack it with a bit of organisation and bit of determination and show our quality then we've got good opportunities."
Neil confirmed that Tyrese Campbell had missed the game with an injury picked up in training on Monday.
