Doyle was forced out of Friday night's home win over Notts County and is being monitored, butshould be okay to feature.

Otherwise, boss David Weir has no new injury or suspension problems. Defender Tony McMahon (ankle), who missed the win over Notts County, is back in training but not yet match fit.

Summer signings Conor Coady, on loan from Liverpool, and striker Lyle Taylor could start after stepping off the substitutes' bench on Friday, while another recent recruit, Sean McGinty, defender Matt Hill and midfielder Ryan Flynn are all in contention.
