Ahead of the game, Moyes said: "We have been competitive and close in all of the games, but what we don’t want is any hard luck stories.

"We want to say 'let’s get the game won, let’s get some wins under our belt.'"

Vito Mannone (elbow), Seb Larsson (knee), Fabio Borini (thigh) are all long-term injuries, but midfielder Lee Cattermole has just returned to training.

Newly-signed striker Victor Anichebe will not be involved as he builds his match fitness, but Jan Kirchhoff is set to be in the squad after returning from a hamstring strain in last week's Checkatrade Trophy game at Rochdale.
