PREVIEW: Hull City v Leeds United

Because Leeds are rubbish in the FA Cup - losing to fourth division Newport County in the third round - Hull City now have to contend with an extra midweek fixture in their burgeoning schedule. That, in addition to squeezing in a 5th round FA Cup tie at the current champions of England, when the Tigers take on Chelsea in three weeks time.

City boss Nigel Adkins prepared a much changed side for the visit of full strength Nottingham Forest in the 4th round of the FA Cup on Saturday - and yet still managed to find the winning formula once again to record a 2-1 victory that set up the aforementioned trip to Chelsea. Team news deems that Polish international winger Kamil Grosicki is in contention for a starting place, after successfully coming off the bench in the cup on Saturday without any further reaction to the injury that has kept City's no.7 out for the past month.

Leeds United, quite incredibly, have a staggering four players suspended for the clash in East Yorkshire that include, Kalvin Phillips, Eunan O'Kane, Samu Saiz and ex-Tiger Liam Cooper. Adam Forshaw could make his Leeds debut after joining the club from fellow Championship side Middlesbrough.
