Sunderland are looking to return to winning ways following back-to-back draws and Jack Ross has made three changes from the side that drew 1-1 with Fleetwood Town last weekend.

And the result is an attack-minded line-up, which sees strikers Josh Maja, Jerome Sinclair and Charlie Wyke all starting.

There is also a place for Aiden McGeady on the bench as he steps up his return from a long-term injury.

Elsewhere, there is a return for Bryan Oviedo as Denver Hume drops to the bench - and it's fair to say Sunderland fans were delighted with Ross' selection.

Here's how fans reacted to the team news on social media:

"Going for it, 5 attackers!!!," tweeted @NRaine97
