Burnley v Hull City preview

Burnley boss Brian Laws has no fresh injury problems ahead of the home match against Hull.
The Clarets squad is unchanged from the one that drew 0-0 with Bristol City on Saturday, meaning Laws is likely to name the same starting XI.
Ross Wallace was a doubt for the match against the Robins with a slight hamstring strain but came on for the last ten minutes and will be pushing for a starting berth against the Tigers.
Midfielder Chris McCann remains an absentee as he is still sidelined with a long-term knee injury.
This was a Premier League fixture last season and Burnley will be hoping for a repeat of the results they enjoyed in the top flight, when they won on both occasions.
Hull manager Nigel Pearson will choose his side for the clash at Turf Moor from an unchanged squad.
Pearson has no new injury or suspension worries and is not expected to make any changes to his starting line-up as the Tigers chase a second straight win on their travels.
Hull clinched their first away league victory since March 2009 on Saturday at Norwich, but Pearson is still without Nolberto Solano, who sustained a thigh strain during training on Friday.
Midfielders Jimmy Bullard (back) and Craig Fagan (groin) suffered no adverse reaction after coming through the full 90 minutes at Carrow Road and are likely to start again.
Long-term absentees Caleb Folan (thigh) and summer signing James Harper (foot) remain sidelined.
