Fulham should have the same squad available which lost to Reading in midweek, though Michael Madl will likely be unavailable after suffering a facial injury early in the defeat.

Thanos Petsos could be available for the Cottagers after the Greek midfielder completed his first training session since joining on loan from Werder Bremen.

Slavisa Jokanovic's side continue to flirt with the Championship play-off places and booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 2-1 victory over Cardiff in January.

Fulham have progressed from two of their previous three FA Cup ties against Hull (1959/60 and 1974/75, both third round).

Fulham have made it to the fourth round of the FA Cup in eight of the last nine seasons.

However, the Cottagers have been eliminated from each of their last four FA Cup games at this stage (2012-2015).

Hull City head coach Marco Silva is likely to select from the same group of players that were available for Thursday night's win against Manchester United.

The head coach had no fresh injury concerns to report when speaking to the media on Friday morning, with Josh Tymon and Jarrod Bowen hoping to feature again after starting in the win against United.

Curtis Davies remains unavailable through injury, while Ryan Mason, Moses Odubajo, Alex Bruce, Will Keane and Greg Luer will also be missing.

Hull will be looking to bounce back from their EFL Cup defeat to Manchester United as they travel to Fulham in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday (kick-off 12.30pm).

Despite a packed schedule, Hull have won three of their six games in 2017 and look refreshed under new head coach Marco Silva.

Hull haven't lost in the FA Cup to a lower-league side than them since Round 4 in 2011/12 (v Crawley).

The Tigers are unbeaten in their last five contests against Fulham in all competitions, beating them 6-0 in December 2013.
