Hull City’s boss outlines his huge selection dilemma but relieved as 28-year-old Skipper could be back in the squad ahead Birmingham City’s clash…

Captain might be in the starting lineup: Hull City team updates and the predicted lineup against Birmingham City.

Hull City is on the move to the Midlands, aiming to recover from their recent 2-1 home defeat to Southampton. The Tigers seemed poised for another home draw, but a last-minute goal by Ryan Fraser gave the Saints the victory.

However, Liam Rosenior’s team is merely three points away from the Championship’s top six and has lost only three times this season. They hold the distinction of being the only team to defeat the runaway leaders, Leicester City, this season.

Birmingham, on the other hand, has appointed Wayne Rooney as their new manager following the departure of John Eustace. The former Manchester United and England star is overseeing his first home match this evening.

Hull City’s Team Status According to Hull’s official club website, they do not have any new injury concerns to address. Midfielder Regan Slater is their only long-term absentee at the moment.

Players like Ozan Tufan, Lewie Coyle, Greg Docherty, Jason Lokilo, and Harry Vaughan are all back in good health and available following recent injury issues.

Hull City team news and predicted XI to face Birmingham City

Projected Starting XI

  • Goalkeeper: Allsop
  • Defenders: Coyle, Jones, Greaves, Vinagre
  • Midfielders: Seri, Morton, Philogene, Tufan, Twine
  • Forward: Delap

It would not be surprising if Rosenior opts to include Coyle in the starting lineup to bolster the defense, especially ahead of Cyrus Christie.

Jean Michael Seri and Tyler Morton have formed the central midfield duo in recent matches, with Docherty offering support while Slater is sidelined.

Tufan has returned and made a substitute appearance against Southampton last Saturday, so he may be pushing for a starting role. The Turkish international has scored four goals in the current campaign and aims to add to his tally against Birmingham.
