Samu Saiz (Attacking midfield) – The 26-year-old should be handed his first start in the Championship as Hernandez continues to vanish for periods when he is needed the most.

Stuart Dallas (Left-wing) – Alioski struggled against Preston, with his display summed up by missing a golden chance in the second half. Still coming to terms in the Championship, Alioski should be dropped and replaced by a player with much more second-tier experience in Dallas.[spacer height=”20px”]
