Hull City will be looking to continue their good recent form on Tuesday evening when they face in form Brentford at The KCOM Stadium.

After falling away from the race for automatic promotion, The Tigers have bounced back and are unbeaten in their last four league matches while visitors Brentford have won five of their last six league matches.

Hull City go into the match with no fresh injury concerns from the 2-2 derby draw with Leeds United on Saturday. Defender Michael Dawson continues to recover from a calf injury but is unlikely to be risked against The Bees. With The Tigers now unable to gain automatic promotion, City boss Steve Bruce could opt to rotate his squad ahead of the end of season Play Offs.

Brentford arrive in the East Riding of Yorkshire without midfield trio Alan Judge (broken leg), Josh McEachran (foot) and Lewis MacLeod (knee) while striker Lasse Vibe and winger Sam Saunders face late fitness tests. Striker Scott Hogan could return to the side.

The fixture promises goals with both sides winning eight of the last 16 meetings between the two clubs. Brentford could prove to be a real handful for the home side with Dean Smith’s side having scored 10 goals in their last three Championship away fixtures and having won on three of their last four visits to the city of Hull.
