Hull City face Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough tomorrow in their second game of the season.

After a disappointing 3-1 defeat at home to Aston Villa on the opening day of the campaign, the Tigers will be looking for a positive result against the Owls. Here is their predicted starting XI for the game-

GK- David Marshall

It is no secret that his confidence is low at the moment but Nigel Adkins is expected to keep him between the sticks, despite new signing George Long waiting in the wings.

RB- Eric Lichaj 

The American international looks to be a really solid signing for the Tigers. He joined for just £400,000 from Nottingham Forest over the summer and looks to be a bargain.

CB- Reece Burke

The 21-year-old, who joined the club from West Ham United last month, is hoping for a big season with City and is set to start his second game in a row.

CB- Jordy de Wijs

Another summer recruit, the Dutch defender had a nervous first game on Monday but is expected to keep his place this weekend.

LB- Stephen Kingsley

He is the Tigers’ first-choice left-back and will play again. City are in the hunt for a back-up/competitor for Kingsley in the loan market.

RM- Jarrod Bowen

The 21-year-old is a key player for Nigel Adkins’ side and will be a threat to Sheffield Wednesday. He bagged 15 goals in the Championship last season and is a real talent.

CM- Markus Henriksen

The Tigers’ newly appointed captain was linked with a move to Cardiff City on deadline day and will start again. He is really starting to impress the City fans.

CM- Daniel Batty

The 20-year-old had an impressive home debut on Monday and looks to be a real talent. He looks to follow in the footsteps of Bowen and be the next youngster to establish himself in the first-team.

LM- Todd Kane

Despite being a defender, Kane has slotted in nicely at left midfield and looks to have found himself a surprise new position.

CAM- Evandro

He’s possibly one of the most underrated players in the Championship and anyone who has watched him play will agree that this is no exaggeration.

ST- Fraizer Campbell

The experienced striker scored in this fixture last season. He will be hoping to score more goals in this campaign.
