Live updates from the KCOM

Good morning from Hull....

Well, not quite yet, but we are on our way and today's live blog comes via a new and improved blogging tool - so we thought we would test it out nice and early. Awful weather en route, lashing it down and windy. Storm Jorge this time (pronounced hor-hay apparently). Lovely. Big big day for Illan Meslier today obviously with Kiko Casilla starting his eight-game ban. A big day for Leeds too who are 11 games away from sealing a return to the Premier League.

Expect a strong display from this guy
