TEAM NEWS | Leaburn returns!


Miles Leaburn returns to the starting line-up for this afternoon’s game against Sheffield Wednesday at The Valley.

The striker, who has missed the last three games with a minor injury, replaces Macauley Bonne in the starting XI.

Ryan Inniss and Gavin Kilkenny also return as Dean Holden makes three changes from the team that faced Derby County last weekend, with Albie Morgan and Steven Sessegnon also moving to the bench.

It likely means a change of shape, moving from a 4-3-3 to either a 3-5-2, 3-4-3 or 3-4-2-1. Either way, Inniss, Michael Hector and Lucas Ness will make up a back three in front of goalkeeper Ashley Maynard-Brewer.

Sean Clare and Corey Blackett-Taylor are expected to operate as wing-backs with Kilkenny and skipper George Dobson in central midfield. Scott Fraser may join the duo in midfield or may play ahead of them, with the in-form Jes Rak-Sakyi and Leaburn likely to make up a front two.

Bonne, who wasn't able to train on Friday with some minor swelling, Morgan and Sessegnon are joined on the bench by Joe Wollacott, Jack Payne, Aaron Henry and Chuks Aneke.
