Russell Martin will have the same players available for Saturday’s Championship meeting with Hull City, but will consider making changes against the Tigers.

The head coach has no new injury concerns following the midweek defeat to Sheffield United, although he admitted he may make alterations to his line-up.

Liam Cullen, Joel Latibeaudiere and Liam Walsh are sidelined by injury, with Cullen and Latibeaudiere due to return after the upcoming international break.

Martin also confirmed Michael Obafemi is in contention for selection having missed the games against Queens Park Rangers and Sheffield United.

“I think we are pretty good, we have some tired men mentally and physically after the disappointment of the other night,” he said.

“But the lads are desperate to play another game. Everyone fit and available, although there might be one or two changes to the team and squad.

“Michael has a chance to be involved tomorrow like everyone else, and we will make the decision this morning.

“It’s the same for him as for every other player. He will be back in the team when he earns the right to be back in the team, he will be back in the squad when he has earned the right to be back in the squad.”
