Hull striker Marlon King is doubtful for Sunday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Tottenham with a back problem.
King has been unable to train all week but manager Phil Brown is hoping he can prove his fitness in a session tomorrow.
Former Spurs defender Anthony Gardner is in contention after overcoming a thigh injury but Brown insists he will not rush him back if not 100%.
Another Spurs old boy, Nick Barmby, has recovered from a calf strain but new signing Stelios Giannakopoulos (thigh) is ruled out.
Provisional squad: Myhill, McShane, Zayatte, Turner, Dawson, Marney, Boateng, Geovanni, Ashbee, Cousin, Mendy, King, Garcia, Hughes, Halmosi, Ricketts, Barmby, Gardner, Windass, Folan, Duke.
