Hull striker Chris Martin is back in contention for his side’s home game against Rotherham.

Martin, on loan from Derby, was ineligible for Hull’s defeat against his parent club on Saturday, but is expected to return to the squad.

Defender Liam Ridgewell made his first appearance for the club off the bench at the weekend and is pushing for his full debut. Reece Burke and Jordy De Wijs have both returned to full training after their respective injury lay-offs and could feature, but Angus MacDonald, Ondrej Mazuch and Jon Toral are still out.

Rotherham defender Clark Robertson faces a late fitness test due to a swollen ankle, but winger Ryan Williams is set to return.

Williams has been sidelined due to a hamstring injury since the middle of last month, but is fit again and boss Paul Warne could be tempted to recall him to the starting line-up.

Ben Wiles (calf) is pushing for a recall and Warne has no other new injury problems. Striker Kyle Vassell remains sidelined due to an on-going groin problem and midfielder Darren Potter (Achilles) also remains a long-term absentee.
