Hull City could be boosted by the return of two key players for this weekend's Yorkshire derby against old foes Sheffield United at the MKM Stadium.
Though Ozan Tufan and Jean Michael Seri will miss Tuesday night's trip to QPR at Loftus Road, there is a growing belief the influential pair could be back in the squad by the time the Blades arrive in East Yorkshire for Sunday's 3pm showdown in front of what's expected to be the biggest crowd of the season.
Tufan limped out of last Saturday's 5-2 thumping at West Brom after just 20 minutes with the score goalless, while Seri has not featured since being taken off in the second half of City's 0-0 draw with Preston North End at Deepdale earlier this month.

The Ivorian international has missed the last four Championship matches plus the Carabao Cup exit at Bradford City, but boss Shota Arveladze hopes to be in a position to recall him on Sunday afternoon.
Arveladze's squad will be further boosted by the arrival of Dimitrios Pelkas with the Greek international flying into England on Monday to complete the formalities of his loan switch from Fenerbahce. Pelkas will be in the stands at Loftus Road to watch his new side with owner Acun Ilicali, and will train later in the week with the expectation that he will be in the squad to face the Blades.
City will still be without longer-term absentees Brandon Fleming, Greg Docherty, Dogukan Sinik and Allahayr Sayyadmanesh while the club await the results of a scan on the injury picked up by Vaughn Covil during the first half of Saturday's 3-2 victory against Coventry City.
"There have been no miracles in the last 24 hours," the Tigers boss told Hull Live as he prepares his side to take on a QPR side buoyed by their thrilling 3-2 win at Watford on Saturday.
All the injuries we have, have a status. The injuries we have are not contact injuries like a kick on the ankle or an elbow in the eye where you're waiting for the swelling to go down, it's more like muscle injuries," Arveladze told Hull Live on the eve of the trip to the capital.
"I'm definitely looking forward to the boys joining us. In the last game we had (Ryan) Longman and Tyler (Smith) involved after four or five weeks out – he (Longman) came on and had a chance to finish the game, that's what we need – and that can really help us at the end of games."
