Four changes to starting XI

Oscar Gobern makes his first start since 1 February as one of four changes to the team for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Middlesbrough.

Oscar makes his first appearance on the pitch since starting the Yorkshire derby at Leeds United; he replaces Keith Southern.

Elsewhere Oliver Norwood comes back into the side after a one game absence – he replaces Middlesbrough-born Jonathan Hogg in the starting XI.

The third chance comes in the back line, where Tommy Smith returns to the side at the expense of Murray Wallace.

The final switch is in the attacking third of the pitch, with Danny Ward replacing James Vaughan in tonight’s XI. 

Adam Hammill comes up against another of his former sides tonight – he played 10 games for Boro during a loan spell from Wolves in the second-half of the 2011/12 campaign.
