Hull set to have unchanged squad despite Michael Dawson’s return to training

Hull boss Steve Bruce is expected to choose from an unchanged squad for the home game against Brentford.

Defender Michael Dawson returned to training on Monday after missing the last three games due to a calf injury but has only an outside chance of featuring in the squad.

Bruce has no new injury or suspension worries following Saturday’s 2-2 home draw against Leeds when Jake Livermore and Chuba Akpom returned to the starting line-up.

Forward Mo Diame (thigh) remains sidelined and goalkeeper Dusan Kuciak (knee) is out for the season as the Tigers prepare for the play-offs after their automatic promotion hopes were dashed at the weekend.

Brentford will check on the fitness of winger Sam Saunders, who missed Saturday’s 4-1 win at MK Dons through illness.

Danish striker Lasse Vibe is carrying a knock from that game and will also be assessed.

Fellow forward Scott Hogan could return to the squad after he was rested at the weekend, having only recently returned to action following an 18-month injury lay-off.

Philipp Hofmann is close to returning after a back injury but Alan Judge (broken leg), Josh McEachran (foot) and Lewis Macleod (knee) are still out.
