Winger Larsen Touré is handed his full league debut as Mick McCarthy makes three changes to his side for tonight’s live Sky game at home to Birmingham (KO 7.45pm).
The Guinean international comes in for Ryan Fraser, who drops to the bench having been a doubt having taken a kick in Tuesday’s 1-0 win at Leeds.
Touré looks set to play on the right of midfield with Ainsley Maitland-Niles switching to the left.
Up front, McCarthy starts with Brett Pitman and Freddie Sears with Daryl Murphy and David McGoldrick on the bench.
Birmingham makes three changes, Andrew Shinnie, Neal Eardley and Demarai Gray come in for Jon Toral, Paul Caddis and Jacques Maghoma.
Town: Gerken, Chambers (c), Smith, Berra, Knudsen, Skuse, Douglas, Touré, Maitland-Niles, Pitman, Sears. Subs: Bialkowski, Malarczyk, Parr, Coke, Fraser, McGoldrick, Murphy.
Birmingham: Kuszczak, Eardley, Spector, Morrison (c), Grounds, Gleeson, Kieftenbeld, Cotterill, Shinnie, Gray, Donaldson. Subs: Legzdins, Robinson, Maghoma, Toral, Davis, Caddis, Brock-Madsen. Referee: Keith Stroud (Hampshire).
