FA Cup Preview: Hull City Vs Millwall, Kingston Communication Stadium, Hull, 15:00 GMT.

The Lions of Millwall enter the Tiger's lair this Saturday for the fourth-round clash at the KC Stadium. They will be looking to halt the Tiger's current FA Cup run that has seen them reach the fourth round for the first time in 20 years.

Millwall on the other hand will be looking to emulate their 2004 team that reached the FA Cup final, losing out to Alex Ferguson's Manchester United.

The Londoners will be without the services of Danny Spiller through injury and Zak Whitbread who is suspended. However, they have the returning Tony Craig and Chris Hackett in the squad and on-loan strikers Tresor Kandol and Izale McLeod are both eligible for the tie.

Hull City will have to shuffle the pack again after the loss of Marlon King to Middlesbrough and the suspension of Craig Fagan. New Signing Kevin Kilbane, who made his debut in the loss to Arsenal, is cup-tied so ineligible to play, and Nick Barmby and Anthony are still not fit.

New signing Manucho will be hoping to make his first start for the Tigers and Andy Dawson who has been out injured for three-months may be in the squad, after starting in the mid-week reserves victory over Everton.

Hull City will be parading their new record signing Jimmy Bullard for the fans on Saturday but he will not be playing as he was not signed in time to take part.
