Jordy de Wijs and Reece Burke are back as Hull take on West Brom in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday.

The defenders missed last weekend’s 1-0 win at Bolton with minor knocks but are set to return to a backline that remains without Angus MacDonald.

Michael McKenzie made his full league debut in that fixture, while fellow defender Ondrej Mazuch is edging closer to full fitness and impressed off the bench in the north west. Evandro and Jon Toral remain sidelined this weekend, so too midfielder James Weir.

Soccer Saturday Super 6

Hull v West Brom is a Soccer Saturday Super 6 game this week.

West Brom will be able to call upon Ahmed Hegazi and Kieran Gibbs at the KCOM Stadium. Egypt defender Hegazi missed last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Blackburn due to a hamstring complaint, while left-back Gibbs had a hip issue.

Dwight Gayle and Gareth Barry will be assessed after missing that match with calf issues. Kyle Bartley serves a one-match ban against Hull after collecting his fifth booking of the season.
