PREVIEW: Sheffield Wednesday v Hull City

Withered and weary - and we're only one game into a brand new season. Hull City fans have clearly had a gutful of the Allams, especially when you see a current poll on social media asking; 'Would you take relegation now with a guarantee the Allams are gone at the end of the season?' No prizes for guessing which choice is winning at the moment, such is the angst among the Tigernation.

It's still Hullsborough - and always will be.

Meanwhile, elsewhere on social media, just 24 hours from the transfer window shutting, we are reminded of a magnificent article written by national journalist David Conn (click here) on the plight of our club - and the lack of investment going into the squad, despite the vast sums of cash still pouring into the coffers. A year and half on, what's changed? It is still as pertinent now, as it was then.

Manager Nigel Adkins will be boosted by the return of Jon Toral to his midfield options following a minor niggling injury. Kamil Grosicki and Jackson Irvine are still on the fitness trail following their summer exploits in the World Cup. Summer signings George Long and David Milinkovic, will be pushing for their first starts of the campaign.

The hosts will have Atdhe Nuhiu missing from their attacking options, while the Kosovo international serves a one match ban following his sending off during the defeat to Wigan Athletic, on the opening day. Lucas Joao is in contention for the vacant starting berth up front, but Steven Fletcher could also be an option for a first start since December, after a serious knee injury.
