Hull v Barnsley preview
Last Updated: 26/02/18 5:15pm
Hull will check on two unnamed players before finalising their squad for the home game against relegation rivals Barnsley.
Tigers boss Nigel Adkins confirmed two players sustained knocks during Friday night's home win against Sheffield United and will be monitored.
Striker Abel Hernandez is hoping to be back in contention after a six month injury lay-off due to a ruptured Achilles and defender Ondrej Mazuch (hamstring) is also closing in on a return.
Stephen Kingsley (groin), Harry Wilson (shoulder), Moses Odubajo and James Weir (both knee) are all still out.
Barnsley boss Jose Morais will assess defender Daniel Pinillos, who missed his side's first league win since New Year's Day on Saturday at Birmingham due to illness.
Fellow defender Matt Mills remains doubtful due to an ankle injury that kept him out at the weekend, but Morais has no other new problems.
Adam Jackson is expected to continue alongside Liam Lindsay at the heart of defence if Mills misses out again.
Midfielder Christoph Knasmullner made his first appearance for the club off the bench at the weekend and is pushing for his first start, as is on-loan Bournemouth midfielder Connor Mahoney.
Hull have won their last four home league matches against the Tykes, most recently winning 1-0 in November 2012.
Barnsley won, however, on their most recent visit to the KC Stadium, a 1-0 victory in the FA Cup in January 2013.
Hull have kept clean sheets in each of their last three home league games; their best run since five successive shutouts at the KCOM in February 2016.
Barnsley have won as many league games on the road in their last four than in their first 12 this season (W2 L2).
Hull's last five goals in the Championship have all been scored by different players.
Oli McBurnie has netted three goals in his first three starts for Barnsley. Before this run, he hadn't scored a league goal since netting a hat-trick off the bench for Newport County in November 2015.
