Hull manager Nigel Pearson is not expected to tinker with a winning line-up for the visit of Nottingham Forest.

Pearson made four changes for the midweek win over Derby, with midfielder Jimmy Bullard returning for his first appearance of the season to inspire the Tigers to only their second win.

Bullard, fellow midfielders Tom Cairney and John Bostock and striker Jay Simpson all returned to help Hull turn in their best display of the season and Pearson does not have to make any unforced changes.

Striker Caleb Folan (thigh) and summer signing James Harper (foot) have yet to appear for the Tigers this season and remain sidelined with long-term injury.

Hull, unbeaten at the KC Stadium this season, will be hoping to climb into the top half of the table with victory.

Nottingham Forest striker Robert Earnshaw could make a return.

Earnshaw missed the 2-1 win at Preston in midweek after limping out of the draw with Millwall last weekend with a hamstring injury.

The Wales striker has had a scan which showed no damage to the muscle and he could come straight back into the side.

Midfielder Lewis McGugan scored a brace at Deepdale and will continue as Forest look to pick up their first home win of the campaign.

Fellow striker David McGoldrick remains a fortnight away from returning from his shoulder surgery but Nathan Tyson and Dexter Blackstock are in contention to start.
