Team news: Hull City (A)

Who's in and who's out for Championship game number four tonight at the KCOM Stadium

20 August 2019

Tony Mowbray has named one change to his team for tonight's Championship clash against Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.

Danny Graham drops to the bench, with Adam Armstrong coming in to replace the powerful forward up front. Armstrong was the lone frontman against Hull the last time we visited The Tigers' home, and scored the opener against Hull when the two teams last met.

An Armstrong hat-trick will see him chalk up a half-century of career league goals, whilst Graham's just one strike away from 50 league goals in Rovers colours.

Sam Gallagher keeps his place in the side, whilst Stewart Downing will start on the left flank. For the fourth consecutive league game, Lewis Travis and Bradley Johnson start in central midfield.

Greg Cunningham continues in his role at left back, with Amari'i Bell available if needed from the bench.

The home side have Jackson Irvine as captain, with the Australia international lining up behind attacking trio Kamil Grosicki, Tom Eaves and star man Jarrod Bowen.

Ex-Liverpool man Kevin Stewart will join Irvine in central midfield for The Tigers, whilst Everton loanee Josh Bowler, who scored against our Under-23s last season, is available from the bench.

Kick-off this evening is at 7.45pm and you can follow all the action across our social media channels for tonight's game, which is also being shown live on Sky Sports Football.
