Brady back with Hull bunch
Hull winger Robbie Brady hopes to shake off a virus in time to start in the home game with Crystal Palace.
The Irish teenager has started in all three of the Tigers' league games since arriving at the KC Stadium on loan from Manchester United in July, but was forced out of the midweek defeat at Leeds due to the illness.
Midfielder Tom Crainey is expected to return to Nigel Pearson's squad after missing out in midweek due to a groin strain.
Strikers Dele Adebola and Aaron Mclean could return to the starting line-up after Pearson threatened to make changes after the 4-1 loss at Elland Road.
Defender Paul McShane (calf) and winger Cameron Stewart (knee ligaments) remain long-term absentees as the Tigers chase only their second win in their last 10 games on home soil.
Crystal Palace's injury problems are mounting ahead of the trip.
Kagisho Dikgacoi is facing a spell on the sidelines after injuring his hamstring against Coventry on Tuesday night, and fellow midfielder Owen Garvan is also likely to miss out with a hip problem.
Attacking midfielder Darren Ambrose missed out against the Sky Blues with a knee injury and remains doubtful along with striker Glenn Murray, who has been out for two games with an ankle knock.
Veteran frontman Steffen Iversen is still missing with hamstring trouble, Nathaniel Clyne is out with a foot injury and fellow full-back Dean Moxey serves the final game of a four-match ban.
Boss Dougie Freedman is close to signing ex-Hull defender Anthony Gardner and Mexican striker Antonio Pedroza but neither will be fit enough to figure.
Chester gaffe gifts Palace win
Crystal Palace held on for their third successive npower Championship win and registered their first away success since October as Hull defender James Chester's first-half own goal gifted them a 1-0 victory.
Chester clipped the ball past his own goalkeeper, Adriano Basso, from six yards while under pressure from Palace striker Jermaine Easter in the 15th minute and the Tigers, unable to breach the visitors' resolute defence, crashed to their third league defeat of the season.
Palace, boosted by their midweek success over Coventry when two late goals saw them snatch all three points, were pushed on to the back foot in the opening exchanges and again for long periods following Chester's gaffe, but Hull lacked a cutting edge and only seriously threatened in the closing stages.
Hull made two changes following their heavy midweek defeat at Leeds, with goalkeeper Basso making his first league start and Tom Cairney replacing Andy Dawson.
Australia international midfielder Mile Jedinak and striker Wilfried Zaha also made their full debuts for the Londoners.
Palace took the lead with their first meaningful attack in the 15th minute after Hull had made all the early running.
Norwegian midfielder Jonathan Parr whipped in a cross from the right side of the penalty area and Hull defender Chester, challenged by Easter on the six-yard box, deflected the ball beyond Basso into the bottom corner.
Palace striker Sean Scannell and Hull's on-loan Manchester United teenager Robbie Brady traded long-range efforts and Basso was then forced into action by both Easter and Parr, who also tried their luck from outside the area.
Visiting goalkeeper Julian Speroni held efforts from Cairney and Robert Koren as Hull stepped up the pressure towards the end of the first half.
And he did even better when diving full length to deny Matty Fryatt's angled drive, while Koren's follow-up effort was blocked by Palace defender Peter Ramage.
Hull winger Brady fired a fine 25-yard shot just over the crossbar soon after the restart and Cairney pulled a volley from similar distance wide.
Palace manager Dougie Freedman sent on substitute Andy Dorman for Zaha in the 63rd minute and Hull counterpart Nigel Pearson replaced Brady with veteran Nick Barmby soon after, but chances dried up at either end.
Jedinak was forced off injured as the game entered the closing stages and Darren Ambrose stepped off the bench, while Pearson sent on striker Dele Adebola for Cairney in a bid to salvage a point.
Hull stepped up the tempo in the final quarter and with eight minutes left Aaron Mclean saw his goalbound header saved by Speroni, while Hull defender Corry Evans' 25-yard shot forced a smart sprawling save from the visiting goalkeeper soon after, but Palace held on for a rare away win.
