Hal, Edwards and Kuhl all startHaving only played on Wednesday night, Nigel Adkins has shuffled his pack a little, making three changes to the side that started in the goalless affair at Elland Road in midweek.
Hal Robson-Kanu makes his first start of the season, while Ryan Edwards is also drafted into the starting XI, Simon Cox and Jake Taylor dropping to the bench.
Aaron Kuhl is also handed a start in midfield, starting alongside Oliver Norwood as Hope Akpan misses out through a minor injury. Danny Guthrie is not involved after picking up an injury in the week.
Stephen Kelly, Pierce Sweeney and Jack Stacey all join the group at Griffin Park but are not named in the squad this afternoon.
