Arijanet Muric deputies in goal for James Trafford, as he did in the last round, while 18-year-old Wilson Odobert is handed his first Clarets start.

The likes of Vitinho, Jack Cork, Manuel Benson, Anass Zaroury, Jacob Bruun Larsen and Jay Rodriguez also start.

Lyle Foster misses out through suspension, serving the second game of his three-match ban for the red he was shown against Forest.
