    Hull are likely to be without captain Eric Lichaj (hamstring) for Tuesday night's visit of Blackburn.

    The American is a doubt after coming off in Saturday's draw at Brentford.

    Fellow defenders Callum Elder and Angus MacDonald remain on the sidelines, with the latter having been out for a year.

    Blackburn secured their first league win of the season on Saturday and have full-back Tosin Adarabioyo close to fitness, but Harry Chapman and Dominic Samuel are not yet ready to return.

    Match facts
    • Hull have not lost three consecutive league matches against Blackburn since March 1989.
    • Blackburn are looking to win consecutive league visits to Hull for the first time since December 1979.
    • Following their victory over Reading in their first home game, Hull are looking to win their opening two league matches of the season at the KCOM Stadium for the first time since 2015-16, when they beat Huddersfield and Fulham under Steve Bruce.
    • Blackburn have lost on each of their past four league trips to Yorkshire, conceding at least three goals in each of those matches. However, Rovers' last such victory did come at Hull in August last season.
    • Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray has recorded seven league victories against Hull City, more than versus any other team.
    • No player has had more shots in the Championship in the first three matches without scoring than Blackburn's Bradley Dack (12 - joint with Brentford's Sergi Canos).
    Confident of a resounding home victory tonight. 3-1 to th boys.
    I'll be there in spirit. But actually in a boozer.

    Good opportunity tonight to get 3 points, if they play anything like they did Saturday, then Blackburn will be hard-pressed to match them.

    If Lichaj is not playing will he go for McKenzie who is probably more defensive-minded rather than Lopes? Lopes did well in that position Saturday and had an assist to his name, so maybe he will stick with him.

    2-0 to City.

    1-1 would be my guess

    However as I’m missing it in the sun it’ll probably 4-0 to City!

    Looking forward to this one after what sounded like a decent performance on Saturday. 2-1 to City.

    I hope he goes for Lopes at right back, McKenzie scares me to death.

    My first game of the season tonight.looking forward to it, cant be any worse than Blackburn away last season,I think we were 3-0 down with mazuck injured again. Felt sorry for the fella as he wasnt a bad defender. Anyway I'll go for 2-0 to us.and if we do 7pts from 4 games is a great start for a young team. C'mon cityyyyyy.

    Huge game tonight because we are the main event on SKY. It will obviously have an effect on the attendance but it is an opportunity to win a few fans back with a good performance.
    The stadium will look dreadful with all those empty seats on show but an empty ground often helps the atmospherics especially if we have something to cheer.
    Looking forward to it.

    Need to get to grips with Bradley Dack. He was given the freedom of the KC on their last visit.

    Being on SKY didn't seem To affect the attendances at other games this weekend.
