Barmby has been absent for the last 6 games with an ankle injury but is now fully fit. His return will see City revert to a 4-4-2 formation after experimenting unsuccessfully with a five-man midfield at Bristol City on Saturday. Ryan France could make way, with Stuart Green moving to right wing.

No further changes are expected to be made. Ian Ashbee (suspension) and Alton Thelwell (illness) are still unavailable for selection.

City will go a 4th game without a goalkeeper on the bench. Cover is still yet to be brought in for number 1 Boaz Myhill who is the only keeper available while Matt Duke remains injured.

Meanwhile, admission to the North Stand at the KC Stadium will be just £2 for City fans under the age of 16 arriving before 7:15pm.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Myhill; Joseph, Cort, Delaney, Dawson; Green, Lewis, Keane, Elliott; Facey, Barmby.
Subs: Hinds, France, Price, Walters, Allsopp.
