George Boyd returns from his ban to start for Hull City against Swansea City in the Premier League.

Steve Bruce has named George Boyd in his Hull City team for the match with Swansea City on Saturday following the forward's three-game suspension.

Boyd, who was banned last month for spitting at Joe Hart, is joined in the side by the returning Maynor Figeuroa.

Alex Bruce is forced to drop to the bench for the hosts, while midfielder Tom Huddlestone misses the game due to injury.

Swansea manager Garry Monk has decided against making changes to his side following last week's convincing 3-0 victory over Norwich City, meaning that Michu and Wilfried Bony continue in attack.

Hull: Harper, Rosenior, Figueora, Chester, Davies, Meyler, Livermore, Boyd, Jelavic, Long, Elmohamady

Swansea: Vorm, Rangel, Chico Flores, Williams, Davies, Britton, Shelvey, De Guzman, Routledge, Michu, Bony
