Hull striker Josh Magennis is back in contention for the visit of Preston.
Magennis has missed the Tigers’ last four matches through suspension after being sent off for the second time this season in the win over Nottingham Forest.
He may have to settle for a place on the bench, with Tom Eaves performing well in his absence.
Jarrod Bowen has been in fine form for City, scoring five goals in his last four games, and he will start at the KCOM Stadium.
Preston centre-back Ben Davies is doubtful after he sustained an ankle injury in the loss to Derby at the weekend.
He faces a late fitness test, with Jordan Storey standing by to partner Patrick Bauer at the back.
Tom Clarke (knee), Andrew Hughes (foot) and Louis Moult (ACL) remain the only other absentees.
Preston boss Alex Neil has confirmed that Clarke and Hughes are close to returning.
