Sone starts on 33rd birthday

Joe Pigott and Kayden Jackson both start for Town against Burton Albion this afternoon.

Kieran McKenna has made a total of three changes to last Saturday's draw at MK Dons, with Pigott, Lee Evans and Sone Aluko, who is celebrating his 33rd birthday today, coming into the starting XI.

Bersant Celina, Conor Chaplin and Tyreeq Bakinson drop out, with the trio all named amongst the substitutes.

Christian Walton, aiming for a fifth clean sheet in six games, is between the sticks for the hosts, with the regular group of Janoi Donacien, Luke Woolfenden and George Edmundson forming a back three in front of the shot-stopper.

Wes Burns and Dominic Thompson will look to supply the wing-back threat in front of more than 20,000 fans at Portman Road.
