David Moyes has made two enforced changes from the team that beat Leicester City last weekend.
The good news is that Angelo Ogbonna is back after a lengthy spell on the sidelines after Aaron Cresswell was forced out through injury.
As Candh predicted earlier this week Cress is understood to have pulled a hamstring and it looks likely that Oggy may slip into the role with Diop and Dawson retaining their roles at central midfield.
That remains to be seen as Moyesie is never predictable but it seems likely that could be the case with Ben Johnson moving into Arthur Masuaku’s role.
Th DC Congo international is understood to have sustained an injury and that his knee has swollen up ahead of today’s lunchtime game.
It’s something of a mix and match line up in the circumstances but the squad is in such good heart that we reckon a win may well be on the cards.
