Boss Brian McDermott is without suspended duo Rodolph Austin and El Hadji Diouf, while defender Sam Byram has been ruled out through injury.

Jamaican midfielder Austin received a three-match ban after being sent-off against Brighton at the weekend, while striker Diouf was hit with a two-game suspension following his dismissal in the same fixture.

They join full-back Byram on the sidelines after the 19-year-old failed to recover from the hip problem that kept him out of the Brighton defeat.

United, who are aiming for their first away league win since the start of December, could finish as high as 10th but as low as 20th in the npower Championship table.
