Niasse, who has scored five goals in 16 appearances since joining Hull on loan in January, was sent off in the 25th minute of Saturday’s 2-0 league win over Watford for a challenge on M‘Baye Niang.

Hull successfully appealed to the FA over the decision and Niasse is now available for Saturday’s league trip to Southampton.
