Hull City manager Steve Bruce has named an unchanged side from their semi-final win over Derby County, while Sam Hutchinson has been recalled for Sheffield Wednesday in this afternoon’s Championship playoff final at Wembley.

Goalkeeper Allan McGregor once again sits out for Hull as he has been struggling with a back problem, which forced him out of both legs against Derby.

As expected, Eldin Jakupovic has kept his place in goal for the Tigers, with Dusan Kuciak on the bench as backup if required.

With regards to the Owls’ selection, head coach Carlos Carvalhal has made just the one change from his side that overcame Brighton & Hove Albion in the semi-finals.

Hull City: Jakupovic; Odubajo, Dawson, Davies, Robertson; Huddlestone, Livermore; Elmohamady, Diame, Snodgrass; Hernandez
Subs: Kuciak, Bruce, Maguire, Meyler, Maloney, Clucas, Akpom

Sheffield Wednesday: Westwood; Hunt, Lees, Loovens, Pudil; Wallace, Lee; Hutchinson, Bannan, Forestieri; Hooper
Subs: Wildsmith, Matias, Nuhiu, Helan, Joao, Lopez, Sasso
