Tony Mowbray has rotated his side for Sunday's game at Lincoln City, and is bolstered by Danny Graham's return to the side, with the striker unavailable for the last couple of pre-season friendlies.

Graham starts at Sincil Bank having missed the trip to Port Vale and the home clash against Liverpool last week due to a slight injury.

Only Darragh Lenihan and Elliott Bennett keep their places from the starting XI which began the game against Liverpool on Thursday evening.

Scott Wharton starts in what looks to be a back three, with the young defender appearing against the side who he spent the second half of last season with.

The hosts include the experienced central midfielder Lee Frecklington in the XI, whilst summer signing John Akinde also starts.

Danny Cowley has the Trialist brothers on the bench and both A and B will be hoping to impress in the Lincolnshire sunshine.

Kick-off is at 3pm and you can keep track of all the action via our social media channels.
