PREVIEW: Hull City v West Bromwich Albion

Last Saturday, something happened in the life of Hull City that is rarer than a Halley's Comet sighting. Hull City actually won at Bolton. It's only taken 88 years in the making. As it turned out, the win was crucial, because with plenty of other teams in the lower echelons winning, the Tigers could've been in a perilous position already at this early stage of the season.

Nigel Adkins deserves a modicum of credit for the victory, after rotating some of his squad to find the winning formula. The City boss may well do so again, as defenders Jordy de-Wijs and Reece Burke should come back into the reckoning for the hosts. Fraizer Campbell will be looking to retain his starting place after his recall brought about the only goal of the game at Bolton.

West Bromwich Albion manager Darren Moore has so far guided his team into the play-off mix, but his team have not won any of their past three matches, losing two of those in the process. Squad news deems Ahmed Hegazi and Kieran Gibbs should be available again, but Dwight Gayle and Garreth Barry need late fitness tests. Defender Kyle Bartley serves a one match ban.
