PREVIEW: Hull City v Swansea City

Is it 'must win' territory already? The jury is probably still out on that particular point, but it surely is 'must not lose' territory with just 11 games to go. The visit of relegation rivals Swansea City is crucial and perhaps timely, as the Tigers have had the wood on the Welsh side this term winning both previous encounters this season 2-0.

Marco Silva is set to be boosted by the return of Curtis Davies to bolster his defence. The central defender has been back training with the squad throughout the week and is declared fit for the match. Evandro remains out with a calf strain, while Markus Henriksen and Michael Dawson are at least a week away from consideration.

The Swans have seen a sharp upturn in form since Paul Clement's arrival and the club have hoisted themselves out of the bottom three. However, full-back Kyle Naughton is sidelined with a hamstring injury, meaning Angel Rangel is likely to cover in defence. Jefferson Montero and Ki Sung-Yueng have recovered from knee injuries and should be added to the squad.
