Coleman has named an unchanged side

Maja has missed the start of the season with a knee injury but is back in the fold as James Vaughan misses out through suspension.

Coleman has named the same starting XI that won 2-0 away at Burton last weekend, with Marc Wilson returning to the squad after injury.

Former Black Cats Vito Mannone and Paul McShane start for the visitors.
