No new selection problems for Hull boss Steve Bruce

Hull boss Steve Bruce could opt to stick with a winning line-up for the home game against promotion rivals Brighton.

Bruce has no new injury or suspension problems as his side chases a sixth win in seven league games, but the likes of Isaac Hayden and David Meyler are pushing for recalls.

Winger Robert Snodgrass may be rested following his recent return to the starting line-up after a dislocated kneecap and that could mean a recall for Ahmed Elmohamady.

Striker Chuba Akpom is pushing for his first league start of the year, while deadline day signings Nick Powell and Dusan Kuciak may have to be patient as they wait to make their debuts.

Liam Rosenior could make his first Brighton appearance since damaging knee ligaments in November.

On-loan striker James Wilson should feature after recovering from a minor groin problem.

Club captain Gordon Greer remains sidelined, as does fellow defender Gaetan Bong who returned to training this week, Brighton boss Chris Hughton said Tuesday's game comes too soon.

Hughton's side have recovered from their eight-match winless run in all competitions by winning their last four.
