Match Preview

Bullard back in Tigers frame 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. Marlon King will undergo a late fitness test to determine whether he makes Coventry`s trip. The striker made his first professional start in over a year as the Sky Blues saw off Doncaster 2-1 and sustained a dead leg just after the hour mark as he started to feel the pace. If he does make it then he is guaranteed a hot reception at the KC Stadium on his first visit to an away ground since his return to the game. King was on loan with the Tigers in December 2008 when he was involved in the nightclub incident that saw him sentenced to 18 months in prison. Elsewhere, City manager Aidy Boothroyd revealed matchwinner Gary McSheffrey, fellow winger Danny Ward and Martin Cranie all took knocks against Rovers in midweek and will be assessed. Midfielder David Bell (thigh) will also be looked at by Coventry`s medical team.

Match Report

Frustration at KC The KC Stadium witnessed yet another stalemate as Hull and Coventry could not be separated in a goalless npower Championship clash that could have gone either way. The Humberside ground has seen only four goals all season - fewer than any other in England's second tier - and it was no real surprise that the majority of the 20,626 present witnessed a third 0-0 draw of the campaign. Optimism was high heading into the clash with Coventry the only remaining team in the Championship to have found the net in each of their league games, but that record has now been extinguished. In an uninspiring first half full of unforced errors, Jimmy Bullard came closest to breaking the deadlock when his long-range strike came back off the woodwork. Both sides had good chances to find the net in an exciting second half but a mixture of wayward finishing and solid goalkeeping from both Matt Duke and Keiren Westwood meant it ended honours even. Marlon King failed his fitness test on a dead leg, meaning he avoided a potentially hot reception at the KC Stadium on his first visit to an away ground since his return to the game. King was on loan with the Tigers in December 2008 when he was involved in the nightclub incident that saw him sentenced to 18 months in prison. Nigel Pearson made three changes to the Hull side hammered 4-0 at Burnley in midweek, new loan signing Rowan Vine handed his debut in a new-look side along with returning duo Bullard and Richard Garcia. Vine picked up a yellow card after just 40 seconds, but the striker's early enthusiasm was hardly replicated in goalscoring openings in what was a scrappy first half low in quality. In a rare moment of excitement, Bullard brought the home crowd to their feet 19 minutes in when his 25-yard strike beat Westwood but came back off the crossbar. Hull's on-loan defender Daniel Ayala could consider himself fortunate to stay on the pitch after half an hour, escaping with a booking for an ugly two-footed challenge on Richard Keogh. Vine sent an effort over the bar and later headed straight at Westwood but there was very little else to get excited about in the opening 45 minutes. With the points very much up for grabs, the second half was much livelier affair. The visitors seized the early initiative and Keogh fired straight at Hull keeper Duke, Aron Gunnarsson found the side-netting and Danny Ward failed to do better with a back-post header. The momentum then swung in Hull's favour as the hosts enjoyed a spell of pressure in which substitute Nick Barmby should have broken the deadlock, firing wide when presented which a clear-cut opening after 70 minutes. The final 10 minutes saw plenty of chances at either end. Duke stood up well to keep out Gunnarsson before Lukas Jutkiewicz fired wide for Coventry. Bullard and Anthony Gerrard then drilled over for Hull, with Westwood producing great saves to deny Tom Cairney and Robert Koren.
