Match to be played on Tuesday 10th February 2015 at 19:45. Venue: The KC Stadium, Hull.
Hull City go into their game against Aston Villa off the back of a more positive result against Manchester City.
Steve Bruce will be delighted with the way his team battled for a point over the weekend after being comfortably beaten in the game against Newcastle United.
Hull are by no means out of danger but a win in this game would put them in a more favourable position, easing the pressure in terms of the relegation fight.
For Aston Villa, Paul Lambert has to try and help the side to find a way to start putting points on the board and to get the side moving in the right direction.
The performance against Chelsea over the weekend showed more than the heavy defeat against Arsenal, but points are what’s important at the moment.
A win in this game would also do Villa’s confidence no harm at all and could put a spring in the step of the Midlands side ahead of more important games.
Here are the possible teams Bruce and Lambert could go with for the game.
Hull City: McGregor, Dawson, Bruce, McShane, Elmohamady, Livermore, Huddlestone, Meyler, Ramirez, Hernandez, Aluko
Aston Villa: Guzan, Hutton, Okore, Vlaar, Cissokho, Cleverley, Westwood, Delph, Weimann, Agbonlahor, Benteke
