Hull City have come through the international break unscathed and with no new injury concerns, Mike Phelan has confirmed.
The Tigers remain without long-term absentees Moses Odubajo (knee), Alex Bruce, Andrew Robertson (both calf), Abel Hernandez (groin), Will Keane (knee) and Shaun Maloney (back), but are in buoyant mood ahead of Saturday's match at Sunderland.
"We've got enough players within this group to take to Sunderland to perform at the level I expect," Phelan told hullcitytigers.com. "They're training well, they're buoyant and so they should be. We've prepared the best we possibly can."
Adama Diomande will serve the final of a three-match ban at the Stadium of Light.
