Shrewsbury Town vs Sunderland [19:45 GMT]

The Black Cats ended their mini-slump with a welcome three points against Ipswich Town on Saturday, and will be confident of making it two wins on the bounce tonight.

The Shrews are struggling near the bottom of the table, and haven't won in the league since the end of October.

Lee Johnson must again make a call over who plays at left-back, with Luke O'Nien filling in admirably at the weekend.

Lee Johnson has made two changes to the side that started the weekend win against Ipswich Town on Wearside.

Aiden O'Brien came into the side in place of Elliot Embleton, while Alex Pritchard replaced Corry Evans in midfield.

There were a range of possibilities open to Johnson in terms of shape but, judging by the warm-up routines, Lynden Gooch looked set to play right-back with Luke O'Nien on the opposite side.

With Gooch at right-back, that would release Carl Winchester to move into central midfield alongside Dan Neil.

And that would give a forward line of O'Brien, Pritchard, and Nathan Broadhead, playing behind Ross Stewart.

Shrewsbury boss Steve Cotterill - who spent a spell at Sunderland as assistant to Howard Wilkinson in 2002-03 - also made two changes, in his case to the side that lost at Cheltenham on Saturday.

Tom Bloxham and Rekeil Pyke came into the side in place of the injured Ethan Ebanks-Landell, and the suspended Elliott Bennett.

Sunderland: Hoffmann, Winchester, Wright, Doyle, O'Nien, Gooch, Neil, Pritchard, O'Brien, Broadhead, Stewart

Subs: Patterson, Flanagan, Evans, Alves, Dajaku, Embleton, McGeady

Shrewsbury Town: Marosi, Davis, Pennington, Nurse, Ogbeta, Leahy, Vela, Bloxham, Pyke, Udoh, Bowman

Subs: Burgoyne, Craig, Kaninda, Wilson, Leshabela, Caton, Cosgrove
