CONFIRMED: Hull City & Swansea City line-ups

Hull City KC South Stand

Here is how Hull City and Swansea City will line up for this afternoon’s match:

Hull City starting XI: Harper, Rosenior, Figueora, Chester, Davies, Meyler, Livermore, Boyd, Jelavic, Long, Elmohamady.

Subs: Jakupovic, Bruce, Koren, Fryatt, Sagbo, Aluko, Quinn.

Swansea City starting XI: Vorm, Rangel, Chico Flores, Williams, Davies, Britton, Shelvey, De Guzman, Routledge, Michu, Bony.

Subs: Tremmel, Taylor, Amat, Canas, Hernandez, Dyer, Lita.

Both Hull and Swansea appear to be safe from relegation this season, but a few more points would surely guarantee their status in the Premier League.

The two sides lie on 33 points, seven clear of danger, and with just six games to go, it looks as though both Steve Bruce and Garry Monk can start planning for next season - though with three points up for grabs, expect a closely-fought contest.

The omens look good for Hull, who are unbeaten in their last five home games against Swansea, winning four and drawing one, but it will be the first Premier League meeting at the KC Stadium between the two sides.

A ten game winless run away from home also doesn't bode well for the Swans, but after a convincing 3-0 win over Norwich last weekend, confidence is high as they look to notch consecutive wins for the first time since December 2012.
