Shackleton bags his first league start since lining up in the play-offs semi final second leg at Elland Road at the end of last season with Forshaw missing out altogether with a hip injury.

Forshaw failed a fitness test with his hip problem but the midfielder is expected to be fine for next Saturday's hosting of Derby County.

Tyler Roberts also returns from a five-month absence with a knee problem with the Wales international among the substitutes having played 45 minutes for United's under-23s on Monday.
