Doubts for Tigers against Trotters

Defenders Paul McShane and Steven Mouyokolo are both still troubled

by the hamstring injuries that ruled them out of Sunday’s defeat by

Manchester United. Geovanni (knee) and Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink

(shoulder) both suffered injuries in the 3-1 loss and will be

assessed. Midfielder Seyi Olofinjana is available after being given

permission by Nigeria to delay his departure for the African

Nations Cup but Gabon striker Daniel Cousin has left for the

tournament in Angola. Hull (from): Myhill, Mendy, Zayatte, Gardner,

Dawson, Garcia, Olofinjana, Boateng, Hunt, Fagan, Altidore,

McShane, Mouyokolo, Kilbane, Marney, Barmby, Cairney, Ghilas,

Vennegoor of Hesselink, Duke.
