Boss Grant McCann opted to keep faith with the same Hull City starting XI which beat Doncaster Rovers in midweek as the Tigers play in front of fans for the first time since the end of February.

McCann resisted the temptation to bring back Reece Burke and Keane-Lewis Potter, instead keeping them on the bench for Saturday's trip to Oxford United.

The Tigers remain without Jordy de Wijs and Callum Jones, while Tom Eaves must wait for his latest chance despite coming off the bench to score the winner at the KCOM on Wednesday evening.

Matt Ingram keeps his place in between the posts, with Callum Elder, Jacob Greaves, Alfie Jones and Josh Emmanuel making up the back four.

In front of them, Richie Smallwood, George Honeyman, Greg Docherty, Hakeeb Adelakun are in behind in-form marksman Josh Magennis.

Just 1,000 fans will be in attendance at the Kassam Stadium, with United hosting City in their first pilot game before being allowed to increase their attendance next week.

The last time City played in front of spectators was their Championship defeat to Leeds at the KCOM way back at the end of February.
