Preview: Millwall -Vs- Hull City
Hull City travel to Millwall on Saturday afternoon, looking for their first league win of 2013.
City have struggled since overcoming Leeds United 2-0 at the KC Stadium in the last fixture of 2012, seeing Leicester City take second place with a three point advantage following victory over Wolves on Thursday night.
City travel to London boosted by the return of Ahmed Elmohamady on loan from Sunderland. The right wing-back has been sorely missed since being recalled in January and looks set to go straight back into City`s starting eleven in place of Liam Rosenior. City`s two other Egyptian signings on deadline day, Fathi and Gedo are both yet to arrive in Hull, that expected next week subject to visa applications.
City could also make changes in defence as Paul McShane is ill with either Abdoulaye Faye or Jack Hobbs coming back into the team.
Millwall will hand a full debut to striker Rob Hulse. Scott Malone should come back into contention but Nathan Tyson, on loan from Derby County, will miss out.
Although Millwall has not been a happy visiting venue for City supporters, with only three victories in twenty-eight league games; a victory is required if City are to stay in promotion contention.
