Hull v Brighton preview

Hull will be without in-form strike duo Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long for the FA Cup fifth-round replay against Brighton on Monday.

Both sides played on Saturday, making rotation a necessity anyway, but the Tigers' January signings are both cup-tied meaning a chance for the likes of Yannick Sagno, Sone Aluko and Matty Fryatt.

Alex Bruce and Tom Huddlestone both picked up knocks in the 4-0 win at Cardiff and may be excused at the KC Stadium.

Brighton will check on Solly March ahead of the match.

The teenage winger missed Saturday's 2-1 home defeat by Wigan with a minor hamstring problem but could yet make the trip to the KC Stadium.

Boss Oscar Garcia will have to make at least one enforced change to his starting line-up as midfielder Dale Stephens is cup-tied having already played in the competition for previous club Charlton.

Leonardo Ulloa, who scored his fourth goal in four games against Wigan, is expected to play on despite an ankle problem but fellow strikers Craig Mackail-Smith (groin) and Will Hoskins (knee) are out along with midfielder Andrew Crofts (knee).
