Injuries sustained by both Paddy McNair and Marc Wilson mean that Ovie Ejaria and Adam Matthews will assume their respective roles.
Bryan Oviedo returns from injury but isn’t named in Chris Coleman’s starting XI tonight - the Costa Rican will settle instead for a place on the bench.
Our lineup tonight will look like this:
Sunderland: Lee Camp, Adam Matthews, John O’Shea, Lamine Kone, Donald Love, Lee Cattermole, Ovie Ejaria, George Honeyman, Aiden McGeady, Lynden Gooch, Ashley Fletcher
Subs: Jason Steele, Bryan Oviedo, Jake Clarke-Salter, Kazenga LuaLua, Ethan Robson, Callum McManaman, Joel Asoro
Let’s hope the absence of the recently formidable Paddy McNair doesn’t cost us, and we can turn out another performance which is at least on the level of the one we saw at Leeds.
