Hull City v Swansea City

Swansea City will be looking to get back to winning ways in the League Cup clash against Hull City at the KC Stadium on Tuesday.

The Swans were enjoying an undefeated start to the season until Watford got the better of them on matchday five, before being held to a 0-0 draw by Everton at the weekend. Despite being unable to score in their last couple of games, the Swans will be confident going into the game having beaten Hull home and away last season.

The Tigers enter the match fresh off a 1-1 draw with QPR on Saturday, having beaten Cardiff City earlier in the week. But manager Steve Bruce's side were hardly convincing in their their narrow wins over Accrington Stanley and Rochdale in previous rounds, and could struggle against the Welsh side after a busy period of games.

"We will make changes against Swansea," said Bruce. "It would be unwise of me to ask the team to play a fourth game in nine days.With the schedule we've had, you have to. We've got a number of players who need a game and that's what we'll do."

Swansea boss Garry Monk has no injury concerns ahead of the meeting, but, just like his opposite number, he could be set to make some changes after Saturday's action to keep his side fresh.
