Burton Albion vs Sunderland [19:45 BST]

The Black Cats are looking to continue their 100 per cent record this season and make it four wins out of four - and three in League One.

It will be a tough challenge tonight following wins over Wigan and MK Dons, with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink transforming Burton's fortunes.

Sunderland head coach Lee Johnson is weighing up some changes with the games coming thick and fast already this season.

Full team news

Luke O'Nien returned to Sunderland's starting XI at Burton Albion as Lee Johnson made just one change to the side that began the weekend win at MK Dons.

O'Nien missed Sunderland's trip to MK through illness, but he returned at the Pirelli Stadium and took the place of Corry Evans who had suffered a slight hamstring problem on Saturday.

In Evans' absence, Aiden McGeady took on the captain's armband.

Johnson also included new loan signings Frederik Alves and Nathan Broadhead, who arrived from West Ham on Friday and Everton yesterday respectively, on the bench.

Burton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink also made one change, in his case to the side that beat Ipswich Town at the weekend.

Michael Mancienne came into the Brewers' starting XI at the expense of Terry Taylor.
