Preview: Millwall vs. Hull City

STRIKER ROB Hulse could make his full Millwall debut against Hull City at The Den on Saturday after coming on as a substitute against Barnsley.

Hulse made a second-half appearances in the midweek defeat to the Tykes and Kenny Jackett may be tempted to start the QPR loanee as the Lions target a second win in their last eight league games.

The Lions were handed a boost by the extenstion of Adam Smith's loan from Tottenham, meaning the right-back will continue in defence against the Tigers.



Manager Jackett may recall defender Shane Lowry to the starting line-up at left-back and revert Mark Beevers back to his usual centre-half position, with Karleigh Osborne dropping out.

Winger Martyn Woolford could also be promoted to the side after his cameo against Barnsley in place of Liam Feeney.

Scott Malone should return to the match-day squad after Shaun Batt, an unused substitute against Barnsley in midweek, completed a loan move to Leyton Orient on Thursday.



Paul Robinson underwent a successful groin operation in the United States this week although is unlikely to make a return this season. Nathan Tyson (ankle) and Chris Taylor (knee) are also out.

Goalkeeper David Stockdale and full-back Ahmed Elmohamady are set for recalls to the starting eleven as Hull look to bounce back from their FA Cup exit to Barnsley.

Elmohamady has signed on loan from Sunderland for the rest of the season and will replace Liam Rosenior while Stockdale, who was cup-tied last weekend, should return in place of Eldin Jakupovic.

Otherwise manager Steve Bruce has an almost fully-fit squad available for selection with top scorer Sone Aluko the only absentee with an Achilles problem.

The Tigers did complete the deadline-day signings of Egyptian duo Mohamed Nagy and Ahmed Fathi, but the pair will not be involved for the trip to The Den.

Jay Simpson will be pushing for a starting place up front alongside Nick Proschwitz, although the former Lion has not scored since early November.

        Maybe cameo is the wrong word but Kenny said he thought Woolford added balance against Barnsley and it sounds like he might start today. I wasn't there so I can't really say, just going on Kenny's comments really.

    I'm an eternal optimist. Have to be being a Millwall supporter.
    Just think that the penny is going is going to drop tomorrow and 3 points will not be ours. Really hope I'm wrong but Hull do play with 5 across the middle as did Barnsley and in reality we don't have 5 midfielders to combat that. Henry and co will have to be their best if we're going to see any points. Trotter had better get his act together as well. No-one came in for him so he can now put all his efforts into being a Millwall player as I'm sure that's affected his form of late.
