JACK ROSS has made two changes to his Sunderland starting line-up for this evening's home game with Rotherham United.

Grant Leadbitter and Chris Maguire both drop out of the team that kicked off Saturday's 3-1 win at Accrington Stanley.

Conor McLaughlin and Dylan McGeouch are promoted to the starting line-up in their absence, with the former set to play at the right-back and the latter primed to line up at the base of midfield.

The presence of Conor McLaughlin in the back four will mean Luke O'Nien pushing forward into more of an attacking-midfield role.

Marc McNulty once again gets the nod as the central striker, with the returning Charlie Wyke named amongst the substitutes.

Sunderland (4-2-3-1): J McLaughlin; C McLaughlin, Willis, Ozturk, Hume; McGeouch, Dobson; O'Nien, Gooch, McGeady; McNulty.

Subs: Burge (gk), Flanagan, Leadbitter, Power, Maguire, Grigg, Wyke.

Rotherham (4-3-3): Iversen; Olosunde, Ihiekwe, Robertson, Mattock; Wiles, Lindsay, Crooks; Ladapo, Morris, Hastie.

Subs: Price (gk), MacDonald, Wood, Barlaser, Smith, Lamy, Jones.
