Hull City host Newcastle United at the KC Stadium on Saturday (Watch live online at 10 a.m. ET via NBC Sports Live Extra) with the North East rivals both battling for a top 10 spot.

After a sticky patch which saw them lose four straight, Newcastle bagged an injury-time winner against Aston Villa last time out. That goal sent the Magpies up to eight in the PL standings, while Hull are 10 points behind in 11th place.

Steve Bruce’s side smashed Cardiff 4-0 away from home last weekend and the Tigers have a good home record as they’ve only lost four of 13 at the KC this season.


In team news Hull start with in-form strikers Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long up top as the Tigers team is extremely settled. Newcastle start with loan signing Luuk de Jong, who will support French international Loic Remy up front.


Hull City: McGregor, Bruce, Davies, Figueroa, Elomhamady, Rosenior, Meyler, Huddlestone, Livermore, Jelavic, Long. Subs: Harper, Chester, Koren, Boyd, Sagbo, Aluko, Quinn

Newcastle United: Krul; Debuchy, Williamson, Yanga-Mbiwa, Dummett; Sissoko, Tiote, Anita, Gouffran; de Jong; Remy. Subs: Alnwick, S. Taylor, Haidara, Gosling, Marveaux, Shola Ameobi, Cisse
