Manager Neil Warnock has no new injury problems ahead of the trip to the KC Stadium. He may decide to stick with the same team that beat Leicester on Saturday with striker Marouane Chamakh remaining on the bench.

Hull keeper Allan McGregor is sidelined for up to six weeks with a shoulder injury, so veteran stopper Steve Harper comes in.

Recent signings Hatem Ben Arfa and Gaston Ramirez could be in line for their first starts, David Meyler is fit again, however Robert Snodgrass (knee) is out.

Hull (from): Harper, Jakupovic, Davies, Dawson, Rosenior, Robertson, Chester, McShane, Elmohamady, Meyler, Diame, Huddlestone, Livermore, Ince, Brady, Ramirez, Jelavic, Aluko, Quinn, Hernandez, Ben Arfa.

Palace (from): Speroni, Hennessey, Mariappa, Kelly, Fryers, Ward, Delaney, Dann, Hangeland, Jedinak, McArthur, Bannan, Ledley, Williams, Bolasie, Thomas, Puncheon, Gayle, Campbell, Johnson, Doyle, Chamakh, Zaha.


Roy Hodgson

"I think Steve [Bruce] has worked miracles there if I'm honest. He's a top class manager and I like him - what you see is what you get with Steve, he doesn't pull anything over your eyes. I'm sure this week he'll have worked on a plan to beat us and he's got some great players there.

"We can go there in good form and I don't think the type of lads we have will ever get carried away because you can't in the Premier League.

"Our season is all about survival - absolutely. Apart from the top six teams now, I think everybody is on the same wavelength. No matter what people say, everyone looks at the bottom end of the table every week.

"Ten days ago before we kicked a ball at Everton, we were bottom of the league - that puts it in perspective - you can have a bad week and you're straight back down there."

Joe Ledley

"Hopefully we can do it again but we know it's going to be very difficult. We have Hull then the international games to follow. We just need to take it game by game.

"I like the way Hull play, it's a different system and formation. They have brought in some quality players and we know it's going to be hard away from home this season.

"We just need to look forward to games and continue our form. Credit to Steve Bruce with what he's done up there, he's done a fantastic job at home especially."

Julian Speroni

"The squad has been very, very good from last season and we haven't really brought in a lot since. We have good players in key areas, like James McArthur in midfielder and Fraizer Campbell up front, and they are helping us so much.

"Now we have a very solid squad and that's key. You can't really face a season with around 11 players so I think we're really strong now. We're going to have to adapt to different formations as not every game is going to be the same.

"The manager knows that and he's very intelligent. He knows when to change things around. It's impossible to play a whole season with one system. We do have a Plan B, we know we can play different systems. We're feeling confident, we know we can go anywhere and win. So why not again at Hull?
