Last weekend’s red card in the defeat at Stoke means defender Chiriches is suspended, while striker Adebayor has been laid low with illness.
Kyle Walker (foot) and Ben Davies (shoulder) remain sidelined, but fellow full-back Danny Rose is fully fit after a groin injury.
Hull boss Steve Bruce must decide whether to restore Nikica Jelavic to his starting line-up.
Jelavic made a fruitless appearance off the bench against Burnley last week as the Tigers’ 1-0 defeat left them firmly ensconsed in the bottom three with just two games remaining.
David Meyler is also pushing for a recall, but Mohamed Diame (knee) and Gaston Ramirez (hamstring) are both ruled out for the rest of the season.
