Balo up front again, I'd have started Lambert, but on 'form' BR must think Mario offers more - tight call between those two, neither playing great.
Good chance to see more of Can, which is good, Hendo dropping to bench - but decent option to come on later on if game still tight.
Surprised to see Allen, and not Coutinho - concern being we might not create enough going forward - but you never know how a game is going to go. Again though, another good option off the bench.
Don't think it'll be a walk in the park. Hull will look to expose the defense with straightforward balls in, set pieces etc. that have been undoing us. So good to see Jonno dropped. Where the hell is Sahko?!, presume injured. Imagine Hull will be direct, so back 5 need to be up for the contest - Migs coming and commanding in the air would be nice.
Need the 3 points, don't care how we get them. A goal for Balo might take some of the pressure of him - but need to see more from Mario or could be another difficult day.
CMON YOU REDSSSS!!!!!!!!!
