Bruce to keep the faith
[.[views].], BY ClubCall
Hull boss Steve Bruce will name the same 18-man squad when they host league leaders Crystal Palace.
The Tigers fell to their second defeat in three at home to Burnley on Saturday but Bruce is not expected to make too many changes.
Loan goalkeeper David Stockdale is expected to continue between the posts after replacing Ben Amos to make his debut against the Clarets.
Defenders Liam Rosenior and Alex Bruce both shook off groin and knee problems respectively to feature but Paul McShane remains doubtful with a calf strain and is unlikely to be risked.
Midfielder David Meyler still awaits his first start since joining on loan from Sunderland and could make his full debut against the Eagles.
Strikers Robbie Brady and Nick Proschwitz also staked their claim for involvement after being introduced in the second half at the weekend.
