In fact, there are eight Academy graduates in the squad, with Jordan Eastham coming onto the bench in place of Jayson Leutwiler.

The other alterations see Amari'i Bell and Danny Graham return as substitutes, with Stewart Downing and Tyler Magloire dropping out.

For the hosts, Nathan Jones names the same team that started the victory over Hull City at the weekend.

Despite scoring the winner at the KCOM Stadium, Kazenga LuaLua continues on the bench for the home side.
