Michael Branch - unlikely to play
The on-loan striker picked up a hamstring injury in last week's win over Torquay, and is struggling to recover in time for tomorrow.

Gary Alexander could come in as a straight swap, partnering Phil Jevons up front.

Otherwise Peter Taylor is expected to name the same team that defeated Torquay, with Damien Delaney making his Boothferry Park debut. Saul Deeney will also be introduced to the City supporters. He is expected to be named as the substitute goalkeeper after signing on loan from Notts County.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Musselwhite; Regan, Whittle, Anderson, Delaney; Green, Ashbee, Keates, Elliott; Alexander, Jevons.
Subs: Deeney, Burton, Holt, Williams, Bradshaw.
