Hull manager Steve Bruce rotated his squad for Thursday's Europa League loss by Lokeren, and is set to recall most of the players who began at QPR. Yannick Sagbo completes a two-game ban while Robert Snodgrass is a long-term absentee with a dislocated kneecap.
Geoff Cameron and Peter Odemwingie could be involved after sitting out Stoke's opening game following post-World Cup breaks. Stephen Ireland played "in the hole" behind the striker against Villa, but faces a fortnight on the sidelines after suffering a rib injury. Mark Hughes could call upon Charlie Adam to deputise in place of Ireland, though should Odemwingie start, Bojan could well be deployed in a central role behind the stirker.
