City take on Blackpool at the KC Stadium tomorrow, and it could be a similar line-up to the one that lost 4-0 at Huddersfield given the chance to bounce back.

Taylor told the Hull Daily Mail: "There might be one of or two changes but nothing major. There's no panic. We know we're a better side than our last two results might suggest."

Two expected changes are the returns of Stuart Elliott and Damien Delaney. Elliott's been away with the Northern Ireland squad and is now expected to come back in on left wing. Delaney meanwhile has had a knee problem which he hasn't fully recovered from but may play anyway.

Taylor revealed: "We've looked at him closely on certain things in training yesterday and he did well. Hopefully, there will be no reaction and hopefully he will be all right.
"Our physio though is first class and he thinks there's something wrong so we will have to wait and see. What I have been assured about is that if he does play, he can't do any further damage so that's where I might take a chance."

If Delaney is back in City's backline, Richard Hinds is expected to be dropped with Marc Joseph moving across to right-back.

Delroy Facey, Jason Price, Michael Keane and Stuart Green are all players pushing for call-ups, but some if not all may have to settle for a place on the bench at best. Injury-plagued Alton Thelwell may join them after returning to training a week ago.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Myhill; Joseph, Cort, Delaney, Dawson; Price, Ashbee, Lewis, Elliott; Facey, Barmby.
