Robert Snodgrass is likely to replace him against Hull after recovering from a groin problem. Striker Gary Hooper is still out (shin) while defender Sebastien Bassong and midfielder Anthony Pilkington are back in the squad after missing last week.

New Swedish signing Johan Elmander could feature if international clearance comes through in time, while Dutch central midfielder Leroy Fer also returns after missing the season's first league match against Everton through suspension.
