Reece Wabara, left, enjoyed a successful loan spell at Oldham last season

The defender, on loan from Manchester City, suffered a fractured toe against Watford in September and, despite playing through the pain barrier, a specialist advised the 21-year-old following a scan that he would need five weeks to fully recover.

He joins captain Rob Jones (neck), James Husband (shoulder), Yun Suk-Young (ankle), Paul Keegan (hamstring), Harry Forrester (torn quad) and Chris Brown (ankle) on the sidelines.

Forrester has resumed training and could be back by mid-December, while fellow forward Brown may also be available around the same time after Rovers learned his injury was not as bad as initially feared.
