Team news

Marcelo Bielsa has ruled out Barry Douglas of Wednesday's clash with Ipswich, but Jack Harrison could return.  Pontus Jansson is suspended, but Luke Ayling could start after serving a one match suspension.  Ellis Harrison is still sidelined for Ipswich with an ankle ligament injury.


The key battle

Kemar Roofe v Matthew Pennington

Roofe returned to the first team fold at Blackburn Rovers and having netted four goals in August, will be looking to add to his tally on Wednesday against Ipswich Town.  Former Whites defender Pennington could be in for a busy night against him in the Ipswich defence.
