One change to the starting XI
- Harry Bunn replaces injured Sean Scannell
- Only one change to XI that faced Blackburn
- James Vaughan & Joe Lolley back among substitutes
Harry Bunn replaces the injured Sean Scannell in the only change to tonight’s starting XI for the Sky Bet Championship at home to Brighton & Hove Albion; 7.45pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Scannell drops out of the match day 18 entirely due to his hamstring issue, but there are welcome returns to the substitutes’ bench for Joe Lolley and James Vaughan; both are yet to make a competitive appearance in 2015/16 due to injury.
Jacob Butterfield makes his 50th appearance for the Club this evening – he scored in the corresponding fixture last season – whilst Joel Lynch starts against his former club.
