Saturday's 2-1 defeat by Walsall saw striker Lucas Akins red-carded so he starts a three-match ban, while full-back David Gray is also suspended after collecting his fifth booking of the season.

Simon Heslop missed the game with food poisoning and fellow midfielder Michael Doughty was also suffering and had to be substituted before half-time.

Defender Peter Hartley failed to emerge for the second half after picking up a knock and striker Darius Charles remains sidelined with an ankle injury.
