Sunderland could be without makeshift right-back Carl Winchester after he was forced off due to injury on Saturday.

Denver Hume is still expected to be out due to his long-term injury, however the arrival of Dennis Cirkin means Dan Neil may be dropped from the left-back role that he took up against Wigan.

Alex Pritchard may also make his league debut after starting for the Black Cats in their 2-1 win over Port Vale earlier this week.

The midfielder had been unavailable during Sunderland’s pre-season following a bout of coronavirus.
