Quaner makes first Sky Bet Championship start

The 25 year-old replaces Nahki Wells in attack as David Wagner freshens up his side for its second game in just four days.

The other change also comes in the attacking area, where Kasey Palmer replaces fellow Chelsea loanee Izzy Brown in the ‘number 10’ slot; his first Championship start since the New Year’s Eve game against Blackburn Rovers following a hamstring injury.

Brown and Wells are among the subs this afternoon alongside Mark Hudson and Martin Cranie, who replace Jon Gorenc Stanković and Tareiq Holmes-Dennis in this afternoon’s squad.
