Premier League

Hull City v West Bromwich Albion

Team news: George Boyd starts a three-game ban after being charged and found guilty by the Football Association of spitting. Shane Long will face his former club for the first time since moving to the KC in January, while Albion defender Jonas Olsson begins a twi-game ban after collecting ten bookings.

Championship

Barnsley v Bournemouth

Team news: Martin Cranie (hamstring) is out and while Peter Ramage (hamstring) is not too far away from a return, the defender hasn’t trained this week with Reds boss Danny Wilson having a decision to make regarding his inclusion. Marcus Pedersen and Bobby Hassell are still out, with Rueben Noble-Lazurus picking up a knee injury in an under-21s game in midweek. Jim O’Brien (knee) is sidelined for the rest of the season.

Blackpool v Huddersfield Town

Team news: Joel Lynch remains the only long-term absentee and even the defender is back training at Canalside. James Vaughan made his return after five games out last weekend against Blackburn and should be fit to start.

Doncaster Rovers v Sheffield Wednesday

Team news: Ross Turnbull is fit after a calf injury, but the form of Sam Johnstone is likely to ensure that the Rovers’ number one is not rushed back. Rob Jones, boyhood Owls fan Jamie McCombe, Bongani Khumalo, Gabby Tamas and Harry Forrester are all missing. Chris Kirkland could be back in the fray for the Owls if he has suffered no reaction to a calf injury after his return to training yesterday. Sam Hutchinson is back in training after missing the QPR, with Adedeji Oshilaja, fully recovered from a toe problem and now at Hillsborough on loan for the rest of the season, available. Joe Mattock is expected to be on the bench, with Jose Semedo and Reda Johnson still out.

Leeds United v Millwall

Team news: Jimmy Kebe is again missing for Leeds, this time with a hamstring strain. Rodolph Austin could also miss out after suffering a knock in training this week. For Millwall, Steve Morison is ineligible as part of his loan deal from Elland Road.

Middlesbrough v QPR

Team news: Jonathan Woodgate (calf) is fit again, but may have to wait for a first-team recall due to the impressive form of Kenneth Omeruo and Ben Gibson. Muzzy Carayol (knee) is out for six weeks and will undergo surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament next week. Rhys Williams (Achilles) is also sidelined, along with Tomas Meijas (dislocated finger).

Grant Leadbitter is suspended, but Lee Tomlin is fit to start.

League One

Peterborough United v Rotherham United

Team news: Wes Thomas is unlikely to be risked with the striker not 100 per cent fit due to a thigh niggle. James Tavernier is fit again after missing last week’s draw with Walsall. Mark Bradley is out for the rest of the season.

Sheffield United v Wolves

Saturday 1.25pm

Team news: Bob Harris and Matt Hill are set to miss out after picking up injuries in the 0-0 draw at Preston, while the Blades will make a late assessment on John Brayford, out since the FA Cup quarter-final win over Charlton with a calf injury.

Shrewsbury Town v Bradford City

Team news: James Hanson suffered a back spasm this week but is fit to again lead the Bradford frontline alongside Aaron Mclean. Gary Jones, who came off the bench last week after recovering from a virus, is in the squad but unlikely to start.

League Two

Portsmouth v York City

Team news: Once again, Nigel Worthington has a fully-fit squad with the exception of long-term absentee Daniel Parslow as his York side look to push on in their quest for a play-off place.
