Hull v Leicester preview

Hull will be without teenage winger Robbie Brady.
Brady, 19, on loan from Manchester United, was shown a straight red card for serious foul play during the midweek defeat at Southampton and starts a three-game ban.
But midfielder Paul McKenna returns to contention following his one-match suspension and caretaker boss Nick Barmby has no other new injury or suspension problems.
Striker Aaron Mclean returned to partner Matty Fryatt up front in midweek and the pair are expected to continue.
Winger Richard Garcia and midfielder Seyi Olofinjana both featured in a behind-closed-doors game this week as they near their respective first-team returns following long-term knee injuries, but are not yet ready, while on-loan striker Martyn Waghorn (hamstring) and winger Martin Pusic (hip) remain sidelined.
Leicester manager Nigel Pearson expects to have an unchanged squad for his first return to former club Hull.
Pearson is poised to go back to the KC stadium on Saturday just over a fortnight after opting to leave the Tigers and rejoin City for a second spell. He was in charge of the Yorkshire club for 17 months.
Pearson, who has taken seven points from his first three Championship matches, made one change against Blackpool in midweek as Sol Bamba replaced Sean St Ledger at centre-half.
Republic of Ireland international St Ledger, full-back John Pantsil, midfielders Neil Danns, Gelson Fernandes, Yuki Abe and Michael Johnson, and strikers Steve Howard and Jeffrey Schlupp are options for Pearson should he wish to make changes.
Striker Darius Vassell, who is out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury, and defender Aleksandar Tunchev (groin) remain the only players unavailable.
