Hull City vs Queens Park Rangers: Team News

15 March 2019
Hull City have no fresh injury concerns for Saturday’s home game against Queens Park Rangers, although they will be without captain Markus Henriksen who serves the first of a two-match ban after picking up his tenth booking of the season at Norwich City in midweek.

Either Jon Toral or Nouha Dicko is likely to come into the squad in Henriksen’s absence, with Jordy de Wijs likely to remain absent through illness.

The game will also come too soon for Daniel Batty to return from a back problem.

Speaking more about his midfield options without Henriksen ahead of tomorrow’s game, Head Coach Nigel Adkins said: “We have options to deal with that situation which are Kevin Stewart and Jackson Irvine to name but two, and Max Sheaf also comes into my thinking.

“There’s every chance that Kamil Grosicki will come back into the side because he’s a star player for us.

“We expect everybody to be fit from the squad that travelled to Norwich, but obviously Markus is suspended. Jon Toral and Nouha Dicko were in a 20-man squad that travelled in midweek, so you would imagine that one of those two will come into contention, and David Marshall will wear the captain’s armband.”

QPR could be without Matt Smith for the third game running after the striker picked up an injury in training last week, while Angel Rangel also looks likely to be missing although he is nearing a return from an injury that has kept him out since December.

Defender Geoff Cameron was on the bench for the midweek defeat against Rotherham after recovering from ankle ligament damage and will be pushing for a starting place.
