Bruce back for Tigers

Hull defender Alex Bruce is expected to return to contention for the home clash with Charlton.

Bruce missed the midweek win over Derby due to a dead-leg sustained at Brighton last week and manager Steve Bruce must decide whether to recall his son or retain Corry Evans.

Boss Bruce must also decide whether to stick with the 4-4-2 formation he switched to at half-time during Tuesday night's win.

The Tigers manager discarded his 3-5-2 formation and after replacing midfielder Robert Koren and striker Jay Simpson with new signing Gedo and Nick Proschwitz he was rewarded with an improved performance.

Gedo will be hoping to make his first start after scoring on his home debut against Derby, but defender Abdoulaye Faye (calf) and striker Sone Aluko (Achilles) remain sidelined.

Hull are chasing a 10th home league win of the season in a bid to stay in the second automatic promotion spot.
