Hull City will be looking to lift themselves off the bottom of the Championship tomorrow with a win over Preston. Here is a predicted starting XI for the Tigers-
GK- David Marshall- The Scotland international has played every game for City between the sticks this season.
RB- Reece Burke- Eric Lichaj is a doubt for tomorrow having missed training all week so Burke is likely to slot in for him.
CB- Tommy Elphick- The Aston Villa loanee will start at the back for the Tigers once again.
CB- Jordy de Wijs- He is expected to start next to Elphick. The Dutch defender has returned to training this week having been out of action since City’s draw with Middlesbrough at the end of September.
LB- Todd Kane- Stephen Kingsley, like Lichaj, hasn’t trained this week so Adkins may put Kane at left-back instead.
RM- Jarrod Bowen- The 21-year-old winger will be hoping to inspire his side to a much needed three points tomorrow.
CM- Markus Henriksen- The Tigers’ captain has been on international duty and returned to training on Thursday after helping Norway to 1-0 win over Bulgaria on Tuesday.
CM- Jackson Irvine- The Australian international is expected to come straight back into Adkins’ starting eleven.
LM- Kamil Grosicki- He has also been on international duty over the past week but made his return to training yesterday.
ST- Nouha Dicko- Fraizer Campbell limped off last time out against Sheffield United and Dicko came on and did well. Therefore, Adkins could start him against Preston.
ST- Chris Martin- The experienced striker, who is loan from Derby County, is still looking for his first goal for City.
