Yannick Sagbo: Likely to start for Hull

Hull will be without cup-tied record signings Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long for the FA Cup fourth-round trip to Southend.

The absence of the £14million means Yannick Sagbo and Matty Fryatt will be hoping to impress at Roots Hall.

Manager Steve Bruce will rotate his starting XI but is without Tom Huddlestone (suspended), James Chester (hamstring), Robbie Brady (groin) and Sone Aluko (Achilles).

Southend have re-signed former striker Lee Barnard on loan from Southampton until the end of the current campaign, with a view to a permanent deal in the summer.

Barnard scored 37 league goals in 75 games for the Shrimpers before moving to St Mary's, where he has been out of favour since the Saints' promotion to the Barclays Premier League.

Southend boss Phil Brown told the club's official website: "It's great news that we've managed to bring Lee to the football club, I'm sure he can make a good impression.

"He obviously did very well for the club when he was here originally, and hopefully he can have more success in front of goal as he did then.

"Lee hasn't played much first-team football so far this season but did well during two loan spells in League 1 last season.

"We've got some very important games coming up and I felt it was key that we added another striker to our ranks."

Hull squad: McGregor, Harper, Davies, Faye, Figueroa, Bruce, McShane, Rosenior, Elmohamady, Boyd, Quinn, Livermore, Meyler, Koren, Sagbo, Fletcher, Fryatt, Jahraldo-Martin.
