The Hull midfielder goes straight into a squad depleted by an injury list that stands in double figures.

County's cause worsened in midweek with the news that defender Jay McEveley suffered a fractured cheekbone at Middlesbrough and will be out for around eight weeks.

Kris Commons' troublesome hamstring problem flared up again on Teesside and the forward is also out.

Fredrik Stoor missed the Boro game with an ankle injury he sustained at Leicester but it is hoped the right-back will be fit for the final game of his loan spell before returning to Fulham.

There is a chance that midfielder Stephen Pearson (groin) and forward Steve Davies (ankle) will return to the squad following injury lay-offs of one month and two months respectively, while Miles Addison, Paul Green, Chris Porter and Ben Pringle are also out.

Kick-off is at 5.30pm.
