Bringing back the 23-year-old made that the club had to be without the services of Kevin MacDonald for this crucial match.

This change meant that MacDonald has missed his first game after 24 consecutive appearances.
Benik Afobe has been attracting the attention of many clubs from the Championship and some in the Premier League due to his impressive talent.
