Despite returning to full training after shaking off a knee injury, Keiren Westwood misses out for the third match running, with Bruce selecting Cameron Dawson in goal.

Bruce has made five changes to the team who defeated Bristol City on Easter Monday, handing first-team recalls to Liam Palmer, Josh Onomah, Marco Matias, Steven Fletcher and Fernando Forestieri.

Achraf Lazaar is ruled out through illness, Adam Reach looks set to miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury while George Boyd, Gary Hooper and Lucas Joao have dropped to the bench.
