The 20-year-old striker, signed on loan from Manchester United until the end of the season, could play some part for the Tigers.
Manager Nick Barmby expects midfielder Robert Koren to overcome a dead-leg sustained in last week's home win over Peterborough in time.
Barmby has no other new injury or suspension problems and is not expected to make too many, if any, changes to his side.
Another recent loan signing, goalkeeper Trevor Carson from Sunderland, is likely to continue on the bench as back up for Vito Mannone, on loan from Arsenal, as both Adriano Basso and Peter Gulacsi are sidelined with knee injuries.
Defender Joe Dudgeon and midfield pair Robbie Brady and Tom Cairney are pushing for recalls to the starting line-up.
