Elmohamady a doubt but Bruce back
Hull defender Ahmed Elmohamady is doubtful for the game at Blackpool due to a calf injury but Alex Bruce is available following suspension.
Elmohamady was forced off in the closing stages of Saturday's home win over Leeds and replaced by Liam Rosenior, who is on stand-by if the right wing-back fails to make it. Defender Bruce has missed the last three matches following his recent dismissal against Huddersfield and provides manager Steve Bruce with an alternative option. Boss Bruce has no other new injury or suspension problems and could field an unchanged line-up if Elmohamady proves his fitness as Hull look to extend their unbeaten league run to eight matches. Striker Sone Aluko looks set to continue following his recent return from more than a month out with an Achilles injury while fellow forwards Nick Proschwitz and Jay Simpson plus midfielders Seyi Olofinjana and Tom Cairney are all hoping to be involved.
