Fernando Forestieri misses out with a knee injury sustained in their away win over Charlton Athletic and is replaced on the wing by Newcastle United loanee Jacob Murphy.

German centre-back Julian Börner is included in the matchday squad after serving his one-match ban. But the defender is on the bench as Monk has kept faith with Tom Lees and Dominic Iorfa at the heart of their back line.

Goalkeeper Keiren Westwood (shoulder) remains on the sidelines while full-back Liam Palmer completes his three-match suspension.
