Hull talisman Jimmy Bullard will not return for tomorrow’s crunch clash against Wolves but Amr Zaki is set for his Tigers debut.

Midfielder Bullard, out for almost two months with a knee injury, had hoped to feature before the end of January but is not quite ready and will not be risked.

Former Wigan striker Zaki, having moved to the KC Stadium on loan until the end of the season, is likely to be on the bench for the crucial Barclays Premier League relegation encounter.

Defender Kamil Zayatte (ankle) is doubtful having not trained this week, while Geovanni (knee) and Kamel Ghilas (thigh) have niggly injuries.

Seyi Olofinjana is still at the African Nations Cup but Daniel Cousin has returned.

Team (from): Myhill, McShane, Gardner, Zayatte, Dawson, Garcia, Boateng, Barmby, Hunt, Geovanni, Fagan, Mouyokolo, Kilbane, Mendy, Marney, Cairney, Ghilas, Cousin, Altidore, Vennegoor of Hesselink, Duke.
