The Tigers are currently 14th in the Championship table on 40 points, while Blackburn sit two positions and four points above their opponents in this match.
A four-game unbeaten run in the Championship between January 11 and February 1 had seen Blackburn move up the table, but they suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to promotion hopefuls Fulham on Saturday afternoon.
It has still been a positive start to 2020 for Rovers, though, and they are currently 12th in the table, just six points off the playoffs with 15 matches of the 2019-20 campaign left.
Blackburn have been away from the Premier League since the 2011-12 season, while they only returned to the Championship last term having dropped into League One.
The club does appear to be moving in the right direction once again, though, and it is not impossible to imagine them being on the brink of the playoffs heading into the final straight despite their injury problems.
There is no getting away from the fact that it has been a tough few weeks for the club, particularly considering that they lost both Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki during the January transfer window.
The Tigers have credit in the bank having already collected 40 points, though, and they are still 11 points clear of the relegation zone despite their disappointing form in recent weeks.
As mentioned, Hull have lost the last three league meetings between the two sides, but they did go unbeaten in four straight matches against Blackburn between February 2013 and January 2018.
Blackburn Championship form: LDWWDL
Blackburn form (all competitions): LDWWDL
Hull Championship form: WLLLLD
Hull form (all competitions): LLLLLD
Mowbray's side did not pick up any fresh concerns against Fulham, though, and it seems likely that the bulk of the XI from that match will take to the field once again.
Ben Brereton and Danny Graham will both be hoping for starts having featured off the bench against the Cottagers, but Adam Armstrong is again expected to lead the line having scored eight Championship goals this season.
Wilks's goal at the weekend might also have put him in contention for a start, though, while Josh Magennis is another option for change in the final third of the field.
Blackburn possible starting lineup:
Walton; Nyambe, Lenihan, Adarabioyo, Bell; Johnson, Travis; Downing, Rankin-Costello, Gallagher; Armstrong
Hull possible starting lineup:
Long; Elder, McLoughlin, Lichaj, McKenzie; Irvine, Honeyman, Batty, Lopes, Maddison; Eaves
We say: Blackburn 1-1 Hull
This is a tough match to call as the league table suggests that there is not too much between the sides. Both managers will feel that they can harm the opposition in the final third of the field, but we are finding it difficult to separate them over the course of the 90 minutes.
