Hull v Millwall preview
Last Updated: 05/03/18 3:13pm
Abel Hernandez could make his long-awaited Hull return when they face Millwall at the KCOM Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Uruguay striker has been out since August with an Achilles tendon injury but was in line for a return to the matchday squad against Ipswich on Saturday until the game was postponed.
Moses Odubajo provided another boost to the Tigers squad by returning to training on Monday having missed the whole of last season and this with a knee injury. The full-back, though, remains some way from a playing return.
Fellow defender Ondrej Mazuch is ready to return and Markus Henriksen and the on-loan Harry Wilson have rejoined training but are unlikely to feature.
Millwall have been unchanged for the last four games and, despite being held by Sunderland on Saturday to end a three-match winning run, may well be so again. Young winger Fred Onyedinma could be at the head of the queue for a call-up should manager Neil Harris decide to freshen things up.
Forward Aiden O'Brien remains doubtful but is nearing a return from an ankle problem. Defender Byron Webster is out for the season with a knee injury.
Hull have lost just two of their last 17 home matches against Millwall in all competitions (W10 D5).
The Lions haven't faced Hull at the KCOM Stadium since September 2012, when they lost a Championship match 4-1.
Nigel Adkins won nine of his first 10 league matches (including play-offs) against Millwall, drawing the other - he has since lost his last two, both matches in the 2015/16 season with Sheffield United.
Steve Morison has been involved in seven Championship goals in 2018 - only Robert Snodgrass (eight) and Ryan Sessegnon (10) have had a hand in more.
Both teams have scored in 21 of Hull's Championship games this season - only Fulham's games (22) have seen this occur more often this season.
The Lions are unbeaten in nine league games - only Fulham (13) are on a longer run in the Championship.
