Steve Bruce has no fresh injury concerns for the visit of Stoke City. Sone Aluko and Stephen Quinn remain sidelined with Achilles and hamstring injuries respectively, but otherwise Bruce has a fully-fit squad.
That means Bruce's main decision will be between the 3-5-2 formation he utilised at Swansea on Monday or a return to 4-4-2.
Asmir Begovic is a major worry for Stoke’s trip to Hull after suffering a bang on his thigh in midweek. Thomas Sorensen, who has not started a league game since the final day of the 2011-12 season, is on standby to replace him.
Jon Walters is suspended after accumulating five bookings this season. Oussama Assaidi is the player most likely to deputise, after grabbing the 90th minute winner off the bench against Chelsea last time out.
