Hull City vs Blackburn Rovers - Hull likely to be without captain Eric Lichaj for Blackburn clash

Hull skipper Eric Lichaj is expected to miss his side’s home game against Blackburn.

Lichaj was withdrawn at half-time in Saturday’s draw at Brentford and is a major doubt, so Leonardo Da Silva Lopes and Robbie McKenzie could be vying to start at right-back.

Left-back Callum Elder is still not ready for match action after joining from Leicester earlier this month, while forward Josh Magennis and midfielder Dan Batty are pushing for starts.

Defender Angus MacDonald remains a long-term absentee as he works his way back from deep vein thrombosis, which has kept him out for a year.

Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray is likely to choose from an unchanged squad after his side’s first league win of the season against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Manchester City loanee Tosin Adarabioyo is not expected to feature, but could return to training in time for the weekend’s home game against Cardiff.

Winger Harry Chapman will not be included in Mowbray’s squad and will instead continue to build up his game time with the Under-23s.

Striker Dominic Samuel is also hoping to return to action with the Under-23s in the coming weeks as he works his way back from a serious knee injury.
