Leonid Slutsky unlikely to make changes as Hull take on Wolves

Hull head coach Leonid Slutsky is unlikely to make any changes for the home game against Wolves.

Slutsky has no new injury worries and is not expected to tamper with a winning formula after Saturday's 4-1 victory against Burton.

Hat-trick hero Abel Hernandez should resume up front alongside Fraizer Campbell, while latest recruit Sebastian Larsson, David Meyler and Adama Diomande are pushing for starts.

Summer signing Kevin Stewart has yet to feature due to an ankle injury, while midfielder Evandro (hamstring) and goalkeeper David Marshall (ankle) remain sidelined.

Dave Edwards is expected to be unavailable for Wolves' trip to Hull because of an unspecified injury.

The Wales international suffered the problem in training and will sit out, having not been involved so far this season despite being fit.

Helder Costa (ankle), Phil Ofosu-Ayeh and Ben Marshall (hip) remain on the sidelines for boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

Wolves are aiming to maintain their 100 per cent record having also beaten Middlesbrough, Yeovil and Derby.
