The i newsletter cut through the noise

Amr Zaki could start his first game for Hull City after two impressive cameo appearances from the bench in the past week. Seyi Olofinjana is back in the squad after returning from African Cup of Nations duty with Nigeria, while Paul McShane is also available despite suffering a cut head in the midweek draw at home to Chelsea.


Barnsley v Watford

Loan signings Felipe Teixeira and Jay Rodriguez will make their home debuts for Barnsley after helping the side to victory at Preston in midweek.

Striker Rodriguez is likely to start on the bench. Defender Bobby Hassell remains sidelined with injury. "We are now looking for consistency in our play and results," said Tykes manager Mark Robins.

Doncaster Rovers v Reading


Defender Shelton Martis will start for Rovers after returning to the club in a permanent transfer from West Bromwich Albion this week.

Manager Sean O'Driscoll is still without injured defenders Jason Shackell and Adam Lockwood while midfielder Martin Woods needs another week to recover from a groin problem.

Rovers were beaten 2-1 by Cardiff last time out, but O'Driscoll was pleased with the performance. "I'll settle for the way we played against Cardiff - if we perform to the same level against Reading I won't have any complaints," he said.

Nottingham Forest v Sheffield Wednesday

Frank Simek makes his first start for the Owls since the appointment of manager Alan Irvine due to the absence of fullback Lewis Buxton who has been ruled out for a month with a hamstring injury. Winger Jermaine Johnson, striker Francis Jeffers, and midfielder Tommy Miller are also sidelined.

Owls boss Irvine said his side will a face tough examination against high-flying Forest. He said: "Forest are one of the best teams in the division. This game will test us, that's for sure."

Sheffield United v Derby County

Defender Toni Kallio is set to play at leftback for the Blades after returning for a second spell on loan from Fulham. Captain Chris Morgan has been ruled out by a rib injury so Jonathan Fortune will partner loan signing Nyron Nosworthy in the centre of defence.

Defenders Gary Naysmith, Andy Taylor, and Marcel Seip are all injured. Blades boss Kevin Blackwell said: "This could be our biggest month of the season so it is crucial that we put things right."

League One

Hartlepool v Leeds United

Neil Kilkenny (ankle) and Patrick Kisnorbo (calf) face late fitness tests for the trip to the North East, but loan signings Gary McSheffrey and Shane Lowry will return to the squad along with Max Gradel. The trio missed the midweek FA Cup exit to Tottenham Hotspur due to having signed since the 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane, making them ineligible. Shane Higgs (thigh) and Tresor Kandol (hamstring) are out.

Huddersfield Town v Carlisle United

Neal Trotman, Dean Heffernan and Nathan Eccleston are all due to make their debut as manager Lee Clark expects to name an unchanged line-up from last weekend's 1-0 win at Yeovil Town. Michael Collins is back available after injury but will have to be content with a place on the bench.

League Two

Bradford City v Bury

James Hanson is back in training for the first time in almost a month but is unlikely to be risked by Bantams manager Stuart McCall. Peter Thorne returned to League Two action for the first time since August in the win at Torquay United and is likely to again be included on the bench as City look for their first home league win since October.

Darlington v Rotherham United

Centre-back Nick Fenton and fullback Dale Tonge could return to the Millers side as manager Ronnie Moore makes changes following the midweek defeat against Bournemouth. Veteran wingers Paul Warne and Andy Liddell are still sidelined.

Blue Square Premier

Kettering Town v York City

The Minstermen welcome back top scorer Richard Brodie for the trip to play-off rivals Kettering Town.

The 27-goal striker has been forced to sit out the last two games through suspension but is likely to come in for either Michael Gash or Michael Rankine.

Another York player expected to return is midfielder Neil Barrett, who has recovered from a thigh injury as Martin Foyle's men look to extend a 10-game unbeaten league run that has yielded 28 points
