Liam Rosenior, the head coach of Hull City, identifies the defender who will unquestionably play against Plymouth Argyle.

Coach Liam Rosenior had little hesitation in naming the replacement for banned center defender Jacob Greaves, who had already had five cautions this year.

The 26-year-old defender Grant McCann signed four years ago is still a vital member of Hull’s team despite making four more Championship substitutions this season than he has started (three).

“Macca’s going to play a lot of games for us this season. I told him from the start of the season, ‘This is a squad game.’

“Macca’s a huge part of this squad and anyone who watched his performance at Stoke last week for 20 minutes, it tells you a huge amount about his professionalism.

He did not put a foot wrong. The reason he doesn’t put a foot wrong is because he trains like a beast every single day whether he’s in the team or out of the team. Now he has an opportunity to showcase that from the start.”

will also return to the squad after picking up a facial injury against Leeds United but winger Jason Lokilo is a doubt.

“Jason Lokilo took a whack on his ankle and rolled it on Tuesday so we’re assessing that, other than that we’re okay,” said Rosenior.

“Lewie trained fully today (Thursday), he’s got a massive nose.”

Turkish midfielder Ozan Tufan has been a substitute in the last two matches – an unused one in Saturday’s 3-1 win at Stoke City, but Rosenior commented:

“I think he’s getting there.”

Dogukan Sinik is building up his fitness in the under-21s and having played 45 minutes against Coventry City on Monday and has been penciled in for 60 at Swansea City on Friday.

Hull go into the game unbeaten in their last seven matches, all in the league, where they sit fourth.
