Pawel Olkowski may have fully recovered from his stomach bug, while Will Buckley is back in training after a hamstring injury. Phil Parkinson is likely to keep the same formation as Wednesday night.
Hull are missing four centre-backs, including Reece Burke. Tommy Elphick may play in the middle, with full-back Eric Lichaj on one side and youngster Robbie McKenzie on the other.

The Australian midfielder has a couple of goals this season, with only Jarrod Bowen scoring more. This his second season after joining from Burton last summer, he’s good at getting forward into the opposition box, plus is useful in the air.
