Huddersfield’s on-loan defender James Husband will return to the side for Saturday’s game.

Winger Rajiv van la Parra is pushing for a recall, as are midfielder Philip Billing and forward Sean Scannell.

Hull manager Steve Bruce has several players sidelined, including full-back Moses Odubajo (suspended) and midfielder Nick Powell (thigh).

Defender Harry Maguire, midfielder Sam Clucas and forward Sone Aluko are injury doubts.
