DARREN Pratley replaces Ivan Klasnic for this afternoon's crunch home clash with Fulham.
The midfielder, missing in last week's 3-2 win at Wolves with a gashed leg, moves into the team at the Croatia international striker's expsense, as Owen Coyle reverts to a 4-5-1 formation.
Gretar Steinsson returns to the bench after a knee problem, alongside three strikers in Klasnic, Kevin Davies and Marvin Sordell.
Fulham make two changes from the team that beat Norwich 2-1, with Danny Murphy and Pavel Pogrebnyak missing out through injury.
Subs: Jaaskelainen, Steinsson, Eagles, Knight, Kevin Davies, Klasnic, Sordell.
Fulham (4-3-3): Schwarzer, Kelly, Hangeland, Hughes, Riise, Dempsey, Diarra, Duff, Ruiz, Kacaniklic, Dembele.
Subs: Stockdale, Baird, Senderos, Etuhu, Frei, Simon Davies, Trotta.
Referee: Mike Dean
