Back to winning ways, or change of formation?

Really looked like the injuries were taking the toll on our attacking play against Fulham. We need a win but also need to find a way to open teams up until Rothwell is back.

Hull are also now without Grosicki and Bowen so in a similar situation to us.

I would certainly try Davenport for Johnson, Danny to start with Chapman on the wing. I'd also give Samuel a bit more game time at some point.

Great poll, I approve!

Hull is in bad shape... with their two best players transferring, injuries, etc. but you know what they say about taking on a wounded tiger!

No JR-C today. It’s a new guy out, every week, it seems. I do not expect it to be easy to get points; maybe 0-0 today, but we’ve dominated Hull lately.

I would like to see a more traditional 4-4-2 approach, get Graham and Armstrong up top with Downing -Johnson/Davenport-Travis-chapman in mid.

The form table since Christmas does not lie. Hull are in the bottom six as are Leeds. As Fulham was a difficult game this game should be easier. With both teams losing offence minded players to injury and transfers this has 0-0 written all over it. Danny Graham simply cannot start the game on the bench. If Gallagher starts the game he simply must have something in his contract saying he has to do so. Go 4-4-2
-------------------------Walton-----------------------
Nyambe-------Lenihan-------Tosin------------Bell
Chapman------Davenport---Travis------Downing
-------------Armstrong-------Graham--------------

Like that team, Darth. Now for the 64,000 question -who can accurately name tonight's bench?

Any idea as to Mulgrew’s fitness? Does it really matter to the club, if/when he’s fit?
Gallagher NOT fit today

Rovers’ dominate the stat line, & I would imagine if anyone could be beaten, it’s Hull. Still, 0-0, HT.

Not sure I can remember a game where we've had 72% possession in a half (if BBC sport is to be believed), shame we haven't scored yet.
