Nottingham Forest could welcome back Daryl Murphy for Hull clash

Daryl Murphy could be back in the Nottingham Forest squad when Hull visit the City Ground.

The striker has not played since getting injured against his old club Sunderland on December 30 but he is back in training and fit again, although Reds boss Aitor Karanka will make a decision on his match sharpness.

Liam Bridcutt sustained a groin injury in training this week and the midfielder is a major doubt.

Forest signed left-back Juan Rafael Fuentes and goalkeeper Stefanos Kapino on Thursday but both players are unlikely to be involved.

Hull are expected to be without club captain and defender Michael Dawson again after he missed last week’s defeat at Preston due to a groin injury.

Fellow central defender Angus MacDonald made his full debut last week and is likely to resume, while on-loan Liverpool winger Harry Wilson is pushing for his first start.

Boss Nigel Adkins must decide whether to hand Will Keane his first start since recovering from a long-term knee injury.

Adkins has reported no new major injury concerns as the Tigers chase their first league win in 10 matches.
