Fitness concerns for Hull

Fitness concerns for Hull

Hull have a number of fitness concerns ahead of tomorrow’s crucial Barclays Premier League trip to Bolton.

Defenders Paul McShane and Steven Mouyokolo are both still troubled by the hamstring injuries that ruled them out of yesterday’s defeat by Manchester United.

Geovanni (knee) and Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink (shoulder) both suffered injuries in the 3-1 loss and will be assessed.

Midfielder Seyi Olofinjana is available after being given permission by Nigeria to delay his departure for the African Nations Cup but Gabon striker Daniel Cousin has left for the tournament in Angola.

Provisional squad: Myhill, Mendy, Zayatte, Gardner, Dawson, Garcia, Olofinjana, Boateng, Hunt, Fagan, Altidore, McShane, Mouyokolo, Kilbane, Marney, Barmby, Cairney, Ghilas, Vennegoor of Hesselink, Duke.
