Millwall v Hull

ChampionshipVenue: The Den Date: Saturday, 14 August Kick-off: 1500 BST

Millwall striker Steve Morison is back after international duty and midfielder Darren Carter from a suspension.
Liam Trotter has shaken off a knock, while Jimmy Abdou is back in contention after recovering from an ankle injury quicker than was expected.
Hull City are hoping to include midfielder Robert Koren in their squad.
The Slovenia captain, released by West Brom at the end of last season, should feature if international clearance is received in time.

The Tigers enter The Den to face the Lions, who have not been defeated there since last November and celebrated their return to the Championship by roaring to a superb away victory at Bristol City on the opening day.
Millwall manager Kenny Jackett will be hoping his side can build on that excellent 3-0 victory, which brought City down to earth with a bump following their flagship signing of England goalkeeper David James.
Hull, relegated last season, beat Swansea in their first game and are aiming to get back to the Premier League at the first time of asking. They were a League One club when they last won their opening two matches, in 2004.
Having failed to win away throughout the whole of last season, ending Millwall's excellent run at home would be a big boost for Hull, whose last away league victory came in London - at Fulham - in March 2009.

• Hull knocked Millwall out of the FA Cup in the season before last, but the two clubs have not been in the same division since 2005/06.
• Their last four league clashes have ended in draws.
• Hull's only victory in 17 visits to Millwall was a 1-0 win in the old Second Division in August 1986.
• A win for Millwall would see them pick up six points out of six at the start of a season for the first time since 2003.
• They have won the last three home league games, and have won 12 and drawn two of the last 14.
• Hull have gone 24 away league games without a win.
• Nick Barmby has been waiting 17 months for his 100th club career goal.
