Strikers left out: Hull City team news and predicted XI to face Birmingham City

The latest Hull City team news as Liam Rosenior’s side gear up to face Birmingham City in the Championship.

Hull City head into their upcoming Championship clash sat in 6th position in the table.

They occupy the final place in the play-offs and are a point above Norwich City.

The Tigers drew 0-0 away at Preston North End in their last outing at Deepdale.

Hull City team news

As per a report by HullLive, striker Aaron Connolly is a doubt to face Birmingham and is expected to miss out. Adama Traore missed out against Preston but could be back in the squad.

Manchester City loan man Liam Delap remains sidelined. Apart from that, the Tigers have a clean bill of health.

Starting XI

Allsop

Coyle

Jones

Greaves

Giles

Morton

Seri

Philogene

Carvalho

Zaroury

Tufan

Ryan Allsop should keep his place between the sticks and the back four of skipper Lewie Coyle, Alfie Jones, Jacob Greaves and Ryan Giles is likely to stay the same after the clean sheet against the Lilywhites.

In midfield, Tyler Morton and Jean Michael Seri have formed a decent partnership in the heart of midfield. The latter won AFCON with Ivory Coast this winter.

Regan Slater and Greg Docherty provide back-up and fresh legs in that department if needed against Birmingham.

Jaden Philogene, Fabio Carvalho and Anass Zaroury have been ever-present behind the striker over recent weeks. The trio will hopefully hold the key to unlock the Blues’ defence.

Up front, Liam Rosenior hasn’t played with a recognised forward in the last three matches. With Delap and Connolly out, he has Billy Sharp and Noah Ohio to pick from.

However, I can see him going for either Ozan Tufan or Abdulkadir Omur here.
