Hull City will be looking to end a run of four straight league defeats as they travel to The Hawthorns to face West Bromwich Albion in this EFL Championship clash.

West Brom will also be aiming to bounce back after a poor performance and result against Fulham last Saturday which leaves them with ground to cover below the automatic promotion spots.

  • Team news

Baggies midfield starlet Alex Mowatt has been absent with a foot problem since the win at home to Birmingham City and is unlikely to return ahead of Tuesday's game, however, Albion manager Valerien Ismael says the injury is being assessed regularly.

Wing-back Darnell Furlong was sent-off in Saturday's loss at Craven Cottage after the denial of a clear goalscoring opportunity and will be suspended for Wednesday's fixture. Youngster Taylor Garner-Hickman could be relied upon in his place.

Grant McCann has a few concerns for his side heading into the game, with defender Alfie Jones likely to be missing following a hamstring injury sustained in the win at home to Middlesborough.

Tom Huddlestone and Brandon Fleming are expected to be touch and go as to whether they are able to feature in this one.

  • Form guide

The Baggies head into this one after a mixed run of, picking up two wins and two losses after the resumption of football succeeding the international break.

The loss last time out at Craven Cottage has put a dampener on West Brom fans' feelings toward Ismael, after a promising start to the season.

The defeat will knock the confidence of the Albion players, being the biggest loss so far under the Frenchman's reign.

The Tigers will be optimistic that they can rub salt in the Albion wounds, however their recent form would indicate that there's a slim chance of that happening. 

McCann's side have lost their previous four Championship games, scoring in only one of them, with creating and finishing chances becoming a real issue for the second-tier strugglers.

  • Ones to watch

Jayson Molumby: West Brom

The 22-year-old joined in the summer on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion and isn't a nailed-on starter ahead of this one.

However, the Republic of Ireland international has put in lively and energetic performances in the middle of the Albion park, something missing from their defeat against Fulham.

Molumby could come into the side to give an ageing midfield a rest ahead of another tricky clash with Middlesborough.

Keane Lewis-Potter: Hull City

After ripping up League One during the Tigers' promotion campaign, Keane Lewis-Potter could be the one to watch for this Hull side.

Despite a lack of chances created by McCann's side, the 20-year-old has been at the heart of the little that they have conjured up in front of goal.

With the Albion defence allowing Aleksandar Mitrovic time and space to score on Saturday, they will look to avoid doing the same for Lewis-Potter or there could be similar results.
