Brown Taking No Risks
Phil Brown's also without David Livermore, due to an agreement made when City signed the midfielder from Leeds in August.
Brown told City's official website: "The David Livermore situation is ridiculous. I thought initially it was just the game at Elland Road he had to miss, but it's written in for the full year."
John Welsh joins the squad, having not played since 9th December due to injury. Brown may though keep him back for tomorrow's Pontin's Holidays League Cup Quarter-Final match against Rotherham United reserves (2pm at Church Road).
Expected line-up (4-3-3): Boaz Myhill; Sam Ricketts, Michael Turner, Damien Delaney, Andy Dawson; Ryan France, Ian Ashbee, Dean Marney; Jon Parkin, Dean Windass, Nicky Forster.
Subs: Matt Duke, Danny Coles, John Welsh, Stuart Elliott, Darryl Duffy.
