Norwich v Hull preview
Last Updated: 12/10/17 8:33pm
Norwich will be without suspended forward Marley Watkins for the Sky Bet Championship clash against Hull.
Watkins, who subsequently withdrew from the Wales squad through an unspecified injury, was shown a red card late on in the win at Reading before the international break so starts a three-game ban.

Midfielders Mario Vrancic (calf) and Marco Stiepermann (groin) could be in contention again, while club captain Russell Martin is recovering from a back injury and forward Steven Naismith has an ankle problem. Alex Pritchard has been stepping up his recovery from ankle surgery, while Matt Jarvis (ankle), Jamal Lewis (knee) and Louis Thompson (Achilles) also continue their rehabilitation.
Hull will be without defender Stephen Kingsley, who will be sidelined for at least four weeks after undergoing groin surgery this week. Max Clark will continue to deputise for Kingsley at left-back, while striker Frazier Campbell is doubtful after sustaining a minor knee injury in the recent home win against Birmingham.
Evandro, yet to feature for the Tigers this season, is still out. The midfielder is now struggling with a quad muscle problem having recovered from a hamstring tendon injury. Will Keane is hoping to return to action next month following a long-term knee injury and fellow striker Abel Hernandez (Achilles) will be out until next spring.
Norwich have only lost one of their last eight home league games against the Tigers (W5 D2), a 2-0 defeat in September 2010.
Hull have only lost one of their last six league games against the Canaries (W3 D2) but it was their most recent clash in January 2014 in the Premier League.
Since losing 4-0 to Millwall in August, Norwich have won four and drawn two of their six league matches and conceded only one goal.
Despite being in the bottom half of the table, Hull have scored more goals than any other Championship side this season (22) - however, only four of those have come away from home.
James Maddison has been involved in all of Norwich's last four Championship goals (two goals, two assists).
Kamil Grosicki has been involved in 10 goals (three goals, seven assists) in 25 league matches for Hull - however only one of those 10 goal involvements came away from the KCOM Stadium.
These are two sides, like so many others, who would have harboured hopes of promotion at the start of the season. Norwich have been creeping up the league after a bit of a resurgence as they adjust to life under Daniel Farke and his methods.
Hull, meanwhile, had a fantastic win over Birmingham before the international break but they still have plenty of work to do to get themselves back into contention near the top. Narrow home win for me.
Prutton predicts: 1-0 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
