Kevin McDonald has named 10 changes ahead of tonight's EFL Trophy clash against Manchester City's under-21s, as academy graduate Freddy Jeffreys makes his first start in claret and amber.

Harry Chapman makes his return to the starting XI for the first time this campaign, after recovering from his long-term hamstring injury.

Also making his first start in City colours this season, is Norwich City loanee Jonathan Tomkinson, as he lines up in a fresh backline. 

Fellow loanee, Daniel Oyegoke takes his place at right-back, with Ciarán Kelly, who scored in the EFL Trophy opener against Grimsby, to make up the back four.

Colin Doyle returns between the sticks as Harry Lewis is amongst the substitutes for the first time as a City player.

Tonight's attack is made up of Rayhaan Tulloch, Chisom Afoka and Tyler Smith, as forwards Clarke Oduor and Adam Wilson make way.

Alex Gilliead and Brad Halliday will also begin from the bench, while Bobby Pointon and Ash Taylor remain among the substitutes.
