Hull will continue to be without Callum Elder and Jon Toral for the home clash with Cardiff.
Full-back Elder is troubled by a calf strain sustained in the draw with Wigan but he could return against Huddersfield next weekend.
Midfielder Toral has been granted time away from the club as his hamstring problems continue. He has not started a Championship game in 16 months.
New striker signing Norbert Balogh could make his debut after playing in a behind-closed-doors game this week, while boss Grant McCann must decide whether to recall George Honeyman or stick with Leonardo Da Silva Lopes in midfield.
Cardiff will hope to have striker Robert Glatzel available for the trip.
The summer signing missed last weekend’s 1-0 win against Middlesbrough, with Omar Bogle starting in his place.
The Bluebirds were dealt a blow this week after Isaac Vassell was ruled out for two months with a torn quad.
The forward only arrived at the club on transfer deadline day but now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
