Fagan joined the Shakers until the end of the season last week and the former Hull forward appeared as a late substitute in the 2-0 defeat to Coventry - the second game in succession where Blackwell's men have failed to find the net.

Fellow striker Jonson Clarke-Harris could also come into contention but the Peterborough loanee missed out on the matchday squad last time out as Stephane Zubar, Ashley Eastham, Zac Thompson, Nick Ajose and Ethan Ebanks-Landell completed the full compliment of five loan players eligible for selection under Football League rules.

Last weekend was the first time Blackwell has been able to name seven substitutes in 2013 following a major overhaul of his squad.

Defenders Phil Picken (knee) and Adam Lockwood (groin) remain on the sidelines along with midfielder Shane Byrne (blood disorder).
