Preview: Hull City -Vs- Barnsley

Hull City return to the KC following back to back away fixtures, looking to build on a promising victory in their last outing at Ashton Gate.

Saturday`s visitors are Barnsley, against whom City will be targeting three points before fellow promotion rivals Wolves are welcomed to the KC on Tuesday night.

Steve Bruce must decide whether to continue with a 3-5-2 formation which returned against Bristol City, with Liam Rosenior featuring in an un-orthodox left wing back role. City have no fresh injury concerns and were boosted last week by the return of Robret Koren. Defender Jack Hobbs has resumed light training and is expected to make a comeback in the reserves over the coming week.

Barnsley are welcoming back Jim McNulty and Jim O`Brien while Toni Silva and former Tottenham and Middlesbrough striker Mido is also in contention.

Barnsley have not won at the KC since August 2006 and have lost their last three in East Yorkshire, the most recent being a 3-0 loss last season as Matty Fryatt converted a hat-trick to secure victory.
