Scuffle: Bullard has kept his place in Brown's side despite the incident with Barmby

Hull manager Phil Brown is set to retain Jimmy Bullard and Nick Barmby in his squad for the visit of Arsenal on Saturday evening despite their bust-up this week.

The duo had to be separated by team-mates following an altercation on Monday, just a day after the Tigers were thrashed 5-1 at Everton.

Bullard started at Goodison Park on his return from a knee injury, that had kept him sidelined since December, and is set to keep his starting role.

Brown will welcome back defender Andy Dawson who missed the Everton defeat after suffering an asthma attack as well as Dean Marney while Craig Fagan returns from suspension.

Republic of Ireland winger Stephen Hunt will face a late fitness test on his foot injury while Anthony Gardner (ankle) is still at least a month away from a return.

Team (from): Myhill, Duke, Dawson, Marney, Zayette, McShane, Mouyokolo, Kilbane, Boateng, Bullard, Cairney, Garcia, Geovanni, Ghilas, Hunt, Olofinjana, Barmby, Altidore, Fagan, Venegoor of Hesselink, Zaki.
