Rosenior and Harper doubtful for Hull

Hull could be without defender Liam Rosenior and midfielder James Harper for the clash at Scunthorpe.
Rosenior was stretchered off in the midweek draw with Leeds following an aerial collision with Lloyd Sam.
The right-back sustained head and neck injuries in the collision and, although he has been given the all-clear by doctors, he may not be ready for Saturday.
Harper was replaced by Nick Barmby in the second half against Leeds due to the recurrence of a foot injury he initially sustained during pre-season and is also doubtful.
Defender Nolberto Solano could return following a thigh strain, but manager Nigel Pearson will still be without striker Caleb Folan (knee), goalkeeper Vito Mannone (groin) and winger Richard Garcia (knee).
Recent signing Tijani Belaid is pushing for a place in Pearson's starting line-up after making his debut as a second-half substitute on Tuesday night.
