Harness comes in with Shaun Williams and Lee Brown after recovering from a quad issue as Connor Ogilvie, Reeco Hackett-Fairchold and Gassan Ahadme step down to bench.

There’s no place in the 18 for either Ellis Harrison – amid speculation over his future – and Paul Downing, with new midfielder Louis Thompson in the squad for the first time.

Both Jack Whatmough and Tom Naylor start against their old side for Leam Richardson’s side.
