Team News

  • Allan McGregor is injured, meaning Steve Harper will make his debut for Hull City in goal.
  • He's joined by George Boyd and Abdoulaye Faye on the sidelines, while Yannick Sagbo serves the second of his 3-game suspension.
  • Sone Aluko is a doubt, but will start if he passes a late fitness test.
  • Key duo David Marshall and Steven Caulker succumbed to injury on international duty and will miss the trip to Hull.
  • Joe Lewis and Mark Hudson are set to step in to make their first starts of the season.
  • Andreas Cornelius is a doubt and he continues his rehabilitation from an ankle problem.

Prediction

  • Hull City turned out a spirited performance at Manchester City before the international break, only to succumb to a 2-0 loss. Steve Bruce's side, however, will be confident when they welcome Cardiff City.
  • Cardiff are without David Marshall and Steven Caulker, with the pairing key to their impressive start to life in the Premier League.
  • With the duo missing out for the visitors, a tight home win is a favourable outcome.
