Nathan Baxter and Mallik Wilks are likely to sit out again for visitors Hull.

Chelsea loanee Baxter is battling a hand problem with Matt Ingram again expected to start in goal.

Tom Eaves and Allahyar Sayyadmanesh are facing a race against time to be fit for the game at Bramall Lane.

Striker Eaves has a foot injury while Sayyadmanesh has been nursing a groin problem.
