CHRIS COLEMAN has made six changes to his Sunderland starting line-up for this afternoon's game at Millwall.

The Black Cats boss has changed more than half of the side that started last weekend's 3-3 draw with Middlesbrough, underlining the importance of today's game as he looks to guide his team off the foot of the Championship table.

The most surprising alteration comes in goal, with Jason Steele finding himself back in the starting line-up as January signing Lee Camp drops to the bench.

Tyias Browning returns to the backline, replacing the suspended Jake Clarke-Salter, while Ovie Ejaria has been passed fit to line up at the heart of midfield.

Coleman has extensively remodelled his attack, with Aiden McGeady, Callum McManaman and Ashley Fletcher all returning to the starting XI.

Josh Maja and Joel Asoro both drop to the substitutes' bench, along with midfielder George Honeyman.

MILLWALL (4-4-2): Archer; Romeo, Hutchinson, Cooper, Meredith; Wallace, Williams, Saville, Marshall; Gregory, Morison.

Subs: Martin (gk), McLaughlin, Tunnicliffe, Onyedinma, Elliott, Shackell, Cahill.
