Hull City boss Phil Brown insists Dean Windass has a role in his first team plans.
"On Saturday, the decision was based on who was tiring and who might bring us pace.
"That doesn't mean to say that there'll never be a place for Dean Windass to start, that's for sure. He brings a lot of experience to this squad.
"He's keen to get his first start, like a lot of players, and hopefully that will come sooner rather than later."
