With George Boyd unable for selection thanks to his spit at Joe Hart, but otherwise Hull City is fit and ready to go as they host West Bromwich Albion at the KC from 11:00ET live online at NBC Sports Live Extra.

Replacing Boyd on the wing will be Sone Aluko, at right wing for his second straight match. He played that position against Manchester City last week, coming on as a halftime substitute.

Manager Steve Bruce has selected a very attacking lineup, with both Nikita Jelavic and Shane Long up front, and expect plenty of overlapping as Ahmed Elmohamady will pump in plenty of crosses.

For the visitors, they have a much longer list of absences.  Jonas Olsson reached the 10 yellow card limit, earning him a two-match suspension.  He joins an injury pile of Chris Brunt, Diego Lugano, Billy Jones, Claudio Yacob and Morgan Amalfitano.

However, West Brom still have a number of attacking options.  With Victor Anichebe starting up front, Pepe Mel also has Scott Sinclair, Saido Berahino, and Matej Vydra on the bench to choose from.

They will need all those options, as the Baggies sit precariously just three points above the drop.

LINEUPS:

Hull City – McGregor; Rosenoir, Chester, Davies, Elmohamady; Meyler, Huddlestone, Livermore, Aluko; Jelavic, Long.
Bench – Harper, Bruce, Figueroa, Koren, Fryatt, Quinn, Sagbo.

West Brom – Foster; Reid, McAuley, Dawson, Ridgewell, Thievy; Morrison, Mulumbu, Dorrans, Sessegnon; Anichebe.
Bench – Myhill, D Daniels, O’Neil, Gera, Vydra, Berahino, Sinclair.
