PREM: Hull v Swansea preview


Hull v Swansea preview

Hull will be targeting a third victory of the season against Swansea when they meet in a Premier League relegation battle on Saturday.


The Tigers have already beaten the Swans 2-0 in both August's reverse league fixture and January's FA Cup third-round tie.

Victory would move Hull to within one point of 17th-placed Crystal Palace with the other teams around them not playing this weekend.

But Swansea have roared into life since the arrival of Paul Clement, winning five of their eight league games and last weekend's 3-2 victory against Burnley moved them five points clear of the bottom three.

A draw or win at the KCOM Stadium could lift the Swans up to 14th in the table, depending on Bournemouth's result against West Ham.
 
Hull will have Curtis Davies available for the first time since the end of January after recovering from a hamstring strain, but manager Marco Silva confirmed there would be no other returnees.

It means Dieumerci Mbokani, Michael Dawson, Evandro, Ryan Mason, Moses Odubajo, Will Keane and Markus Henriksen are still out of action for the Tigers.

Kyle Naughton will not be available for Swansea suffering a hamstring injury against Burnley and is likely to be replaced by Angel Rangel.
 
However, some good news for the Swans is that Jefferson Montero (hamstring) and Ki Sung-Yueng (knee) are set to return to the squad.
