Hull could have Sone Aluko back for the first time since October when they make the trip to Sunderland.
The forward has been restricted to just eight appearances this season due to an Achilles problem but is pushing for a place on the bench having played an hour for the reserves.
Steve Harper will continue in goal as Allan McGregor serves the second match of a three-game suspension, while James Chester (hamstring) is the only injury absentee.
Provisional squad: Harper, Jakupovic, McShane, Davies, Bruce, Huddlestone, Rosenior, Elmohamady, Meyler, Brady, Long, Jelavic, Quinn, Boyd, Figueroa, Fryatt, Koren, Faye, Sagbo, Aluko..
