Hull defender Andy Dawson is expected to be included in the starting line-up despite being forced out of last week's win at Coventry just before half-time due to a head wound that required stitches.

Jack Hobbs, on loan from Leicester, replaced Dawson but is likely to make way again.

Goalkeeper Vito Mannone, on loan from Arsenal, is still struggling with a thigh injury similar to the one that sidelined him throughout January and February so Aston Villa's Brad Guzan will retain his place.

Nigel Pearson has no new injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make any changes as his side chase only their third win in nine home league matches.

Norwich striker Aaron Wilbraham faces a race to be fit in time to face his former club as he continues to struggle with a back injury which has hindered him recently.

Fellow forward Chris Martin is recovering well from a hamstring injury, which has seen him miss a month, but is still around a fortnight away from a return.

Paul Lambert must decide whether to stick with the same XI which produced an impressive performance against Bristol City or recall Henri Lansbury to the starting line-up.

The on-loan Arsenal midfielder came off the bench to score an 89th-minute winner against the Robins.
