Irish international midfielder Eunan O’Kane has been struggling with a niggling groin problem and has again failed to make the Whites squad.

Young duo Ronaldo Vieira and Kalvin Phillips will again play in central defensive midfield, behind Kemar Roofe in the no 10 role and lone striker Chris Wood upfront.

Souleymane Doukara will start on the left wing with Hadi Sacko on the right.
