Hull boss Nigel Adkins faces selection poser for Leeds clash

Hull boss Nigel Adkins has plenty of selection dilemmas after making eight changes for his side’s FA Cup win against Nottingham Forest.

Goalscorer Nouha Dicko and midfielder Jackson Irvine, plus defenders Ondrej Mazuch and Max Clark will be hoping to retain their places after returning to the side against Forest.

Striker Will Keane made another substitute appearance after recently recovering from a long-term knee injury and winger Kamil Grosicki stepped off the bench after overcoming an ankle problem.

Allan McGregor, Michael Dawson, Fikayo Tomori and Fraizer Campbell were all unused substitutes, while David Meyler, Seb Larsson, Evandro and Jon Toral will also be pushing for recalls after being left out of Saturday’s matchday squad.

Leeds will be without suspended trio Samuel Saiz, Eunan O’Kane and Liam Cooper, but Adam Forshaw is in contention for his debut.

Saiz sits out the third game of his six-match ban, fellow midfielder O’Kane serves the second of his three-game ban and defender Cooper starts a three-match suspension.

Forshaw missed the recent home defeat to Millwall due to a minor injury following his permanent arrival from Middlesbrough, but could make his first appearance for the club.

Defender Luke Ayling is out for the rest of the season after ankle surgery and striker Caleb Ekuban is still out due to another foot injury.
