Ian Holloway has handed Joel Lynch and Idrissa Sylla their first league starts of the season as they prepare to face Fulham.

Lynch has been a long-term absentee after receiving a hamstring injury early in the season, and makes his first appearance since August, while Sylla has been limited to Carabao Cup and substitute appearances.

The two changes come at the expense of Steven Caulker and Bright Osayi-Samuels, with the latter being named on the bench.
