Ayoze Perez and Aleksandar Mitrovic have been recalled to the starting XI for this evening's game against Everton.
Head coach Steve McClaren has made two changes – one enforced – for the televised home game (5.30pm kick-off).
Striker Papiss Cisse misses out because of a groin injury, while forward Siem de Jong drops down to the bench.
There's also a place on the bench for striker Ivan Toney, recalled from a loan spell at Barnsley this week.
