Although fellow new recruit Aiden O’Brien has not signed in time to be considered for the match-day 18 in the televised contest.

Hume, a £200,000 signing from Sunderland last week, comes in at left wing-back in place of Reeco Hackett.

He wears the number 3, vacated by Lee Brown on Friday, among three changes to the side which lost at Sunderland.
