Amidst an injury crisis at the back, Sunderland bounce back from the international break with a tricky away fixture to the Robins.
GK: Lee Burge. After another Remi Matthews error against Carlisle, Burge will be wondering if he’ll ever be contested for the number one jersey.
RB: Luke O’Nien. If Parkinson drops his wing-back system to cope with all of the injuries, O’Nien may be asked to play more defensively as a proper fullback against Richie Wellens’ side, or even as a third centre half.
CB: Jordan Willis. With Dion Sanderson joining too late to play this weekend, Willis will be one of just two senior centre backs available tomorrow.
CB: Bailey Wright. The second available centre back, there’s no way the Aussie defender misses out.
LB: Conor McLaughlin. This is frightening. With Denver Hume suffering from a knee injury, the out of favour right back could have to play out of position for a full ninety minutes.
CM: Grant Leadbitter. Grant will be fresh after a week without a match and will be hoping to continue his impressive resurgence.
CM: Max Power. The lads’ injury woes mean Phil Parkinson might add another central midfielder to shore up the defence, bring Power back into the team.
CM: Josh Scowen. Scowen has impressed recently in Power’s absence and the inclusion of both Power and Leadbitter could allow the third midfielder to push forward more.
LW: Aiden O’Brien. O’Brien is yet to get a league goal, but is always a handful and awkward for defenders.
RW: Chris Maguire. After netting twice against Carlisle the Scotsman should return to the side from a minor injury.
ST: Will Grigg. Against a Swindon side who like to play on the ground, Grigg could be the best option up top.
