Striker Craig Reid, midfielder ConorClifford and defender Julian Bennett all arrived at Roots Hall in the build-up to Saturday's 1-0 win over Plymouth but had to make do with bit-part roles.

Despite being relatively short of match fitness the trio could be thrown in from the off against the Glovers, although boss Brown is reluctant to make too many changes as he strives to progress in the competition.

Winger Kevan Hurst missed out altogether at the weekend with a knee injury and will be assessed.
