Mark Hughes is clearly not taking today’s opponents lightly, however, and names a strong-looking team to help his side’s chances of progressing to the fourth round of the competition, of which they reached the final back in 2011.
Although the likes of Peter Crouch and Jon Walters drop to the bench, there are starts for Oussama Assaidi, Charlie Adam and Mame Biram Diouf against the Welsh minnows.
