Gary Liddle and Manny Smith are suspended following their respective red cards in the League One opener at Sheffield United and the Capital One Cup tie withFleetwood, while Haydn Hollis is still struggling with a knee injury. That leaves skipper Dean Leacock as the only recognised centre-back.
Liddle will serve the second game of a three-match ban following his sending off against the Blades while Smith will only sit out this weekend's fixture after he was dismissed for two yellow cards.
Youngsters Greg Tempest and Callum McGregor impressed during the first-round victory over Fleetwood on Wednesday night and might have forced their way into manager Chris Kiwomya's starting line-up on Saturday.
