Jelavic and Long back for Tigers

Hull welcome back in-form strike duo Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long for the Barclays Premier League visit of Newcastle.

Hull City's Shane Long looks on

The pair were cup-tied for the FA Cup fifth-round win over Brighton on Monday but should return alongside Tom Huddlestone and Alex Bruce, who missed that game with knocks.

Paul McShane (ankle) and Robbie Brady (groin) are the only long-term absentees and are unlikely to be seen again this season.

Provisional squad: McGregor, Harper, Davies, Bruce, Figueroa, Rosenior, Chester, Huddlestone, Elmohamady, Meyler, Quinn, Livermore, Boyd, Fryatt, Koren, Sagbo, Aluko, Long, Jelavic.
