Johnson kept a clean sheet on his league debut for the club against Walsall last Saturday as he replaced the injured Chris Neal. First-choice goalkeeper Neal suffered a wrist injury in training the day before the game at the Banks's Stadium and could be out for around a month.

Liam Chilvers, Chris Suker and Jordan Hugill kept themselves ticking over with a run out in the development squad this week and along with Louis Dodds, Rob Taylor, Ben Williamson and Lee Hughes are options for manager Micky Adams should he wish to make any changes to his starting line up against the Conference club.

Left-back Dan Jones has resumed training after a foot injury and could come back into the reckoning for the second round tie on Friday night but captain Doug Loft (calf) will definitely remain on the sidelines.
