Hull City will kick off the first of two Yorkshire derbies this week with Sheffield Wednesday visiting the KCOM Stadium on Tuesday night. The Owls sit one point off the playoffs having brushed Middlesbrough aside 4-1 at the weekend. City sit a further six points behind Sheffield Wednesday, on ten points.

Callum Elder will miss out again but could be available to play against Huddersfield Town at the weekend. Stephen Kingsley could make a return, displacing youngster Brandon Fleming.

With City's striker issues yet to be resolved still due to Josh Magennis and Tom Eaves yet to open their Championship accounts this season. This could give new signing Norbert Balogh an opportunity to get into the team with a cluster of three fixtures in a week.

This cluster could also provide ex-captain Markus Henriksen with the perfect chance to force his way back into the team.

Sheffield Wednesday will be without talisman Fernando Forestieri as he serves a six-match suspension. Club captain Tom Lees is a doubt for the game but could still play. Sam Hutchinson was taken off as a precaution during the Boro game and so he could also go straight back into the starting lineup.

Ex-Tiger Moses Odubajo returns the KCOM and is likely to receive a mixed reception from the Tigers faithful.
