Max Power celebrates his goal against Scunthorpe.

The 25-year-old hasn't played competitively since his red card against Oxford on August 1, which resulted in a three-game league ban for the midfielder.

Power made an impressive start to his Sunderland career after arriving from Wigan in the summer, scoring against Scunthopre and Gillingham in his first three games.

He has also made a positive impression off the pitch, after giving a Sunderland fan a lift to the pub ahead of the 1-1 draw with Fleetwood.

In yesterday's poll, we asked if Jack Ross should start Power at the Ricoh Arena, and over 1,000 people took part.

A resounding 82 per cent said they would put Power straight back into the side to face the Sky Blues.

Lee Cattermole and Dylan McGeouch occupied the centre midfield slots during Sunderland's 4-1 win over Rochdale, and Ross will have to contemplate whether or not to change a winning side.
