"We also had a long journey in the week and it's a long season. We have to look at it and make some changes. And a few of the lads have knocks. They need to be looked after.

"But it's an opportunity for some of the lads. They'll want to show what they can do. If they perform well then it makes my job more difficult but that's what we want."

One player that will not be available is Andre Dozzell after the midfielder lost his appeal against the red card he received at Sunderland on Tuesday night.
