Millwall V Hull at The Den - Match Preview

Hulse hopes for start

Rob Hulse is set to make his full Millwall debut when Hull visit The Den.

The striker came on as a substitute during Tuesday night's 2-0 defeat at Barnsley, just a few hours after joining the Lions on loan from QPR.

Winger Scott Malone could be added to the squad after recovering from a back injury, but on-loan Derby forward Nathan Tyson is still out with ankle ligament damage.

Full-back Adam Smith will play after extending his loan from Tottenham until the end of the season.

Midfielder Tamika Mkandawire is back in training after a knee injury but will not figure yet while skipper Paul Robinson remains sidelined with a groin problem.

There will be a change on the bench after manager Kenny Jackett allowed striker Shaun Batt to join Leyton Orient on loan.

Hull will include Ahmed Elmohamady in their squad following his return for a second spell on loan from Sunderland.

The Egyptian wing-back, who will stay at the KC Stadium until the end of the season, could go straight into manager Steve Bruce's starting line-up.

The Tigers have also completed the double loan signing of Egypt internationals Mohamed Nagy and Ahmed Fathi from Al-Ahly until the end of the season, but they will not team up with Bruce's squad until next week.

Goalkeepers David Stockdale and Mark Oxley will both return to contention after they were ineligible for last week's FA Cup defeat to Barnsley, so Bruce must decide whether to retain Eldin Jakupovic.

The Tigers have no new injury or suspension problems, but leading goalscorer Sone Aluko (Achilles) is still out, while Matty Fryatt (Achilles) and defender Joe Dudgeon (knee) remain long-term absentees.
