Cape Town - Relegation-threatened Hull City will be targeting back-to-back victories when they welcome Liverpool to KC Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Tigers did their survival prospects no harm at the weekend, as they clinched a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace to move one point clear of the dreaded drop zone.

The Reds, meanwhile, saw their Champions League hopes all but extinguished following a goalless draw with West Brom, a result that leaves them trailing fourth-placed Manchester United by seven points, albeit with a game in hand.

On the team news front, Hull are boosted by the return of David Meyler following a suspension.

Mohamed Diame (knee) and Andy Robertson (ankle) face late fitness tests, but Nikica Jelavic, Curtis Davies and Robert Snodgrass will definitely miss out.

Liverpool are sweating on the fitness of full-back Alberto Moreno, who is hoping to shrug off a knock in time to feature against the Tigers.

Daniel Sturridge will play no part in the fixture and joins Mamadou Sakho and Lucas Leiva on the treatment table.
