Leading scorer Brett Pitman is back for today's match at MK Dons.

The Blues' 15-goal leading scorer has been restored to Kenny Jackett's attack following two matches on the bench.

He replaces Oli Hawkins at the Stadium MK, who drops into the centre of defence to deputise for the suspended Christian Burgess.

Pitman is one of two changes to the side which last weekend drew to Doncaster.
