Allsopp Doubtful But Green Returns

Last updated : 17 January 2004 By Andy Beill
Allsopp still isn't back to 100% fitness, so Peter Taylor will go with Jamie Forrester and Ben Burgess up front again. The 9-goal Australian will be available for the subs bench though.

Green is set to return to the Tigers' line-up with Richard Hinds dropping to the bench. The midfielder was left out at Darlington last week, but will be back as City seek creativity from the centre of the park.

Alton Thelwell was struggling with a groin injury after returning at Darlington, but looks likely to play again tomorrow. Hinds would be able to stand-in for him if he wasn't fit.

Otherwise, Taylor is set to keep things the same as City look to go three points clear of Oxford at the top of the table. A limited number of tickets are still available for the match and will be on sale until 1pm tomorrow.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Myhill; Thelwell, Joseph, Delaney, Dawson; Price, Ashbee, Green, Elliott; Forrester, Burgess.
Subs: Musselwhite, Hinds, Holt, France, Allsopp.
