Hull midfielder Jimmy Bullard is expected to be back in contention for the home clash with Coventry.
Bullard missed the 4-0 midweek defeat at Burnley after complaining of back spasms, but is hoping to return to the starting line-up.
The Tigers are also boosted by the availability of Nolberto Solano and Richard Garcia, who also missed out on Tuesday due to a thigh strain and illness respectively.
Midfielder Will Atkinson and Nick Barmby were recalled to the side in midweek and manager Nigel Pearson must decide whether to retain them as Bullard, John Bostock and Craig Fagan provide further options.
Pearson's side, who had kept clean sheets in each of their three unbeaten games prior to the trip to Burnley, will be looking to climb into the top-= half of the table with a third home league win of the season.
