Sunderland boss Gus Poyet will make changes for Wednesday night's Capital One second-round trip to Birmingham.

Poyet is likely to hand several of his summer signings a chance at St Andrews with keeper Costel Pantilimon, defender Billy Jones, who has shaken off a hamstring problem, and midfielder Jordi Gomez in line to play as he shuffles his pack.

However, he intends to retain the bulk of the side which drew 1-1 with Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday - a game winger Adam Johnson missed because of illness - with only midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini (groin) unavailable through injury.

Biurmingham boss Lee Clark is without Matt Green and Gavin Gunning (both knee) while Andrew Shinnie (back) is still unavailable.

Provisional Sunderland squad: Mannone, Pantilimon, Jones, Van Aanholt, Brown, O'Shea, Vergini, Roberge, Cattermole, Bridcutt, Rodwell, Gomez, Larsson, Johnson, Buckley, Mavrias, Wickham, Fletcher, Altidore, Graham.
