Hull V Brentford at The KCOM Stadium : Match Preview

07 December 2017
Jarrod Brown to miss Nigel Adkins' first match as Hull boss

Hull's new manager Nigel Adkins will be without striker Jarrod Bowen for his first game in charge against Brentford.

Bowen sustained knee and ankle injuries in last week's draw at Sheffield Wednesday and will miss out for the first time in the Sky Bet Championship this season.

Defender Michael Hector remains doubtful due to a hamstring injury that kept him out last week, while midfielders Markus Henriksen and Kevin Stewart will be assessed after sustaining knocks at Hillsborough.

Long-term absentees Abel Hernandez (Achilles), Will Keane (knee), Moses Odubajo (knee) and Ryan Mason (skull) are all out.

Florian Jozefzoon returns to the Brentford squad after recovering from a hamstring strain.

The winger was forced off against QPR a fortnight ago and missed last weekend's 3-1 win over Fulham.

Neal Maupay is also available after a one-match ban but fellow forward Lasse Vibe is out with a hamstring problem.

Midfielder Alan Judge is targeting a return over Christmas having resumed training 18 months after suffering a broken leg.
