Predicted Hull City line-up to face Bristol City in the Championship
Hull City are on the travel this midweek, facing Bristol City in a Championship game on Wednesday. The Tigers were denied three points against Preston North End when Louis Moult scored an equaliser in the 93rd minute to cancel out Jarrod Bowen’s 85th-minute penalty.
Nigel Adkins’ men now face an uphill task against a Bristol side who are coming into this game on the back of an impressive 1-0 win at Brentford. They are 10 points ahead in the points table as well, closer to the playoffs than Hull City. Hence, Adkins and his men must pull off something special if they are to get anything from the Wednesday game.
Evandro is now suffering from a calf injury, which will keep him out of action for a month. James Weir might still take a week or two to make his way back.
Angus MacDonald is expected to be out for a few weeks. Captain Markus Henriksen would take perhaps one more week to be back.
Probable Hull City XI
Manager: Nigel Adkins
David Marshall (GK)
In the absence of Henriksen, Marshall was the captain and led the side well on Saturday. He deserved a clean sheet in that game.
Reece Burke (RCB)
The youngster has improved his performance since the change in system. He is forming a good partnership with the other two centre-backs.
Tommy Elphick (CB)
The loanee from Aston Villa has been immense for Hull thus far. Expect him to be a key player at the back.
Jordy de Wijs (LCB)
Came back from injury in the last game and should be fit again to start on Wednesday.
Eric Lichaj (RWB)
Lichaj has been consistent in the past few weeks, which is good news for the Tigers. He is probably a contender for Player of the Month.
Dan Batty (CM)
He was injured for the game against Preston but he should be fine to start on Wednesday.
Jackson Irvine (CM)
A steady performer in the past month or so, however, the team would need more from him in the future.
Todd Kane (LWB)
The 25-year-old loanee from Chelsea has to do more, especially to help the attack more often than not.
Jarrod Bowen (RW)
Scored a crucial penalty against Preston late on, only for that goal to be cancelled out by an injury-time equaliser. Bowen is a key player for the Tigers.
Kamil Grosicki (LW)
The Pole was in great form on Saturday. Adkins would be hoping more from him, especially knowing that Evandro has injured himself again.
Fraizer Campbell (ST)
Chris Martin really struggled on Saturday, hence, Campbell may get his chance against Bristol City.
