Hull City v Barnsley preview
Team news for Tuesday night's Championship clash between Hull City and Barnsley at the KC Stadium.
Hull manager Nick Barmby will give winger Josh King until the last minute to prove his fitness.
King, on loan from Manchester United, sustained a dead-leg in the weekend draw at Watford and is a major doubt, so Cameron Stewart, who replaced him on Saturday, and Robbie Brady will vie for a recall to the starting line-up.
Barmby will be boosted by the return to contention of midfielder Paul McKenna, who has served a two-game ban after reaching 10 yellow cards.
Defender Liam Rosenior returned to the starting XI at Watford after a head injury and should continue, but the Tigers will be without skipper Jack Hobbs (knee), fellow defender Joe Dudgeon and striker Aaron Mclean (both hamstring), who have been ruled out for the rest of the season.
Hull are in 10th place, six points behind the top six, with three games remaining.
Barnsley manager Keith Hill could be tempted to make several changes as his side look to secure their Championship survival.
Hill has no new injury or suspension worries as the Tykes chase three points to guarantee their safety, but is likely to recall leading goalscorer Craig Davies, who has started the last two games on the bench.
Winger Matty Done (hamstring), plus defenders Scott Golbourne (groin) and Rob Edwards (dead-leg) have all missed recent matches and are not ready to return.
Teenager Reuben Noble-Lazarus made a rare start in the weekend defeat to Cardiff, but fellow winger David Cotterill is pushing for a recall, as are midfielder Stephen Dawson and strikers Kallum Higginbotham and Andy Gray.
Skipper Jacob Butterfield (knee) and goalkeeper Luke Steele (abdomen) remain long-term absentees.
