Hull City make one change for their home clash with Northampton Town at the KCOM - with Josh Magennis in for Tom Eaves up front. The Northern Ireland International scored the equalizing goal in their vital win at Crewe Alexandra over the weekend and comes in for a deserved start.

  • Goalkeeper

Matt Ingram - An ever present in the side, Ingram has been first choice for the majority of the season. He was in outstanding form against Crewe with arguably the save of the season in the first half of that game.

  • Defence

Lewie Coyle - Captain, and has come into excellent form during the latter half of the season. His professionalism showed through right at the death against Crewe, forcing Mallik Wilks to keep his shirt on during his celebration that could have seen the winger pick up a needless booking.

Alfie Jones - Dropping into defence, the versatile holding midfielder continues to fill in for Reece Burke. A very important player who fans will want to see back in the heart of midfield.

Jacob Greaves - Will he score today? The young man is a threat from set pieces but has still not scored for his home town club. His debut season has been excellent, however.

Callum Elder - Very much a player who is as important going forward as he is at the back, his routines with Honeyman always cause problems.

  • Midfield

Regan Slater - Has impressed for the three games he has now started in a row. Much needed for him personally after finding opportunities hard to come by.

Greg Docherty - In great form, and was key to the winning goal against Crewe.

George Honeyman - Set pieces will be key today - and his energy will be, too. One of the players of the season so far, and he was excellent in the reverse fixture against the Cobblers.

  • Forwards:

Mallik Wilks - Top goal scorer for the side. Could be the matchwinner today, as was proven against Crewe.

Keane Lewis-Potter - Often explosive on the left, the home town boy will be desperate to get on the scoresheet again.

Josh Magennis - Now back from International duty, Magennis slammed home the penalty at the weekend and was superb. Will he net again today?

City fans - What do we make of the team?
