Wigan vs Sunderland [18:00 GMT]

Lee Johnson made four changes to the side that started the weekend defeat against Charlton Athletic.

After a couple of outings as substitute since recovering from the hamstring injury that had sidelined him since December, Denver Hume returned to the starting line-up, with Callum McFadzean making way.

Conor McLaughlin came in at right-back, allowing Max Power to move back into midfield where Carl Winchester dropped out.

Jack Diamond replaced Lynden Gooch, while Jordan Jones came in for Aiden O'Brien.

McFadzean, Gooch, and O'Brien were all included on the bench, but Winchester dropped out of the squad entirely.

Also named on the bench was centre-back Bailey Wright, who was back in the squad for the first time after recovering from the calf injury he suffered in February.

Wigan boss Leam Richardson made one change to the side that won 4-1 at Doncaster Rovers on Saturday, with Callum Lang replacing Thelo Aasgard.

Match odds: Sunderland are big favourites tonight, not surprisingly

Sunderland 4/5
Draw 23/10
Wigan 15/4
