Hull v Harlequins: Teams
At Murrayfield, Saturday May 1, KO: 3pm, live on Sky Sports 4/HD4
Harlequins will be looking to pick up from where they left off at Wigan when they go up against Hull at Murrayfield on Saturday.
The Londoners turned the table upside down by coming from 24-6 behind at half-time to beat the leaders 38-26 at the DW Stadium last Friday and coach Brian McDermott admits it is important to build on their success.
"We've used Friday's result as affirmation of what we are trying to achieve," he said.
"That performance had been coming for a couple of weeks and proved to everyone that what we have been doing is working."
Ben Jones-Bishop will miss the trip north though after suffering a depressed fracture of the skull in the match, as will Lamont Bryan. Props Dave Williams and Ben Jones will travel to Edinburgh.
"We're going to miss Ben, he's been very good for us this season. However we have a few possibilities with Luke Dorn and Chris Melling who offer us a lot of strike," McDermott said.
He added that Hull can expect to face a very different Harlequins side to the one they defeated at the KC Stadium in February.
"Hull didn't play the team we will have out there on Saturday, so we're not drawing any negatives from that previous meeting," McDermott said.
"We are excited about the class players we have on the field that are now adding to the team that have been working really well for each other for the last few weeks."
Meanwhile, Hull head coach Richard Agar has made just one change to his squad as captain Lee Radford makes his return from injury.
Kirk Yeaman could also be back in contention, the centre having missed last week's win over Wakefield with leg injury.
Prop Peter Cusack misses out, while youngsters Danny Nicklas, Paul McShane and Liam Cunningham all retain their places.
There is still no return, however, for captain Sean Long, Craig Fitzgibbon and Danny Tickle, who are absent through injury alongside long-term absentees Mark Calderwood, Shaun Berrigan and Reece Lyne.
Hull squad: Briscoe, Burnett, Dowes, Cunningham, Hall, Horne, Houghton, Lauaki, Manu, McShane, Moa, Nicklas, O'Meley, Radford, Tansey, Turner, Washbrook, Whiting, Yeaman.
Harlequins squad: Clubb, Dorn, Esders, Gale, Howell, Jones, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, May, Melling, Orr, Penny, Purdham, Randall, Sharp, Temata, Ward, Wilkes, Williams, Williamson.
