Tony Mowbray has made two changes to his starting XI for tonight's Lancashire derby with Preston North End at Ewood Park.

An alteration at left back sees Barry Douglas return in place of Amari'i Bell after the Scot missed last weekend's clash at Queens Park Rangers following the birth of his daughter.

Further forward, Bradley Dack returns to the side in place of Harvey Elliott, who drops to the the bench.

Lewis Holtby's recent injury keeps him out of the squad, with Corry Evans coming back into the 20-man group.
