Hull left-back Andy Robertson is available after recovering from a calf injury and head coach Mike Phelan will decide if he is fit enough to start.
"We were satisfied with the point against West Brom at the weekend, especially after coming from behind, but the challenge now is to go on and win these sorts of games". Yet West Brom found themselves in that position coming off the back of victories against last season's champions Leicester City and Burnley, who they put four past.
And whilst Davies says the character shown to keep coming from behind - after also doing the same when beating Southampton on home soil earlier this month - is pleasing, the centre-back was quick to acknowledge the importance of showing more intent right from the off.
But the Baggies' hopes of doubling their advantage - which would have seen them displace Manchester United in sixth place - were dashed by Michael Dawson's 72nd-minute equaliser.
ON a day when Psalm 23 received a rendition, the serenity of green pastures and quiet waters flowing by will have seemed a world away for Hull City supporters. If we didn't want to be in it, then we would have gone out earlier.
Whilst Hull made six changes in that last round, Rafa Benitez actually made seven, with the Newcastle boss already making clear with six changes for Saturday's defeat against Blackburn, that he was going to be mixing it up again - especially with three matches separated by only six days.
Phelan said: "I expect goals from every player who plays for us".
"Truth be told; I think he nicked it off me!"
Michael Dawson has scored two goals in his last three Premier League games, as many as in his previous 108.
This is always a bet to consider when backing West Brom, as 16 of their 21 wins under Pulis have been achieved with a clean sheet. Mike Phelan responded with a simple answer that the player chose to move on after he'd "put us in the Premier League and he's ended up at the top of the Championship".
Hull have scored an average of 0.83 goals per game, the joint lowest in this season's Premier League.
They have conceded 15 goals in their last four away games - and have the top flight's worst defensive record, conceding 27 in total.
Phelan has confirmed that Ryan Mason has joined his lengthy list of players who are ruled out of action and has stated that his cup team will include "young players and players who need game time".
