"He has lost a lot of weight with the illness and was not quite right. Hopefully the last two days have been good for him and we will have a good look for the Hull game."

As for Luongo, Monk added: "He felt a bit groggy within himself after the (Stoke) game but he is back out on the training pitch so hopefully he will be back in contention for the Hull game."
