Hull boss Steve Bruce will be looking towards his strikers as he hopes that his side can score some goals this weekend against Swansea City.
Hull's dreadful form came about after their pleasing 2-2 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates in October, but Nikica Jelavic was injured in the warm up and has ultimately featured in a painful ordeal on the sidelines.
Six weeks later, upon the return of the Croatian, Abel Hernandez jetted off to Uruguay on paternity leave to spend time with his girlfriend and new-born child so the partnership was put on hold for a further two fixtures.
Despite the return of the Uruguayan, Steve Bruce opted to select the in form Sone Aluko over the club's record signing, a choice that proved to have failed with the side registering no shots on target at all.
So, with a must win game at stake at the KC Stadium on Saturday against the Swans, the former Sunderland manager may choose to select his most threatening strike partnership. The last time the duo started a game together was coincidentally the last time that Hull won a Premier League fixture; beating Crystal Palace 2-0.

While another injury swarms the mind of Bruce in Michael Dawson, his son, Alex, is expected to deputise. Also making a return into the starting line-up should be Gaston Ramirez to replace the suspended Tom Huddlestone, who faces a costly four weeks out.
As one manager's eyes will be glued to his forwards, the same applies for the opposition as Garry Monk will be monitoring Wilfried Bony, Swansea's key talismanic goalscorer this season with eight of their previous 13 goals.
There are no injuries for the former Swans defender to worry about. The only concern for the boss is the declining form that is slipping from their grasp at the Liberty Stadium after back-to-back defeats against West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur.
