Changes For Cup Clash

Last updated : 25 October 2006 By Andy Beill
Forwards Michael Bridges and Nicky Forster, signed after appearing for other clubs in the First Round of the competition, are cup-tied, while Manchester City refuse to let on-loan defender Danny Mills from playing.

Jon Parkin will therefore lead the attack, partnered by Darryl Duffy, Nick Barmby or Stuart Elliott.

Andy Dawson will return to the side after being left out of the last two games. He will come in at left back, with Sam Ricketts swapping to the right.

Danny Coles is doubtful with a knee injury, so Damien Delaney will move back to central defence, after playing in midfield on Saturday, to partner Michael Turner. Sam Collins is still out through injury, so 17-year-old defender Matthew Plummer is promoted from the youth team to travel with the squad in case of injuries. Forward Nicky Featherstone is also in the party.

Dean Marney, Mark Yeates and Ryan France will all be looking at possible recalls after missing out recently. David Livermore and Steve McPhee remain injured, while Craig Fagan serves a one-match ban after picking up five yellow cards already this season.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Boaz Myhill; Sam Ricketts, Michael Turner, Damien Delaney, Andy Dawson; Ryan France, John Welsh, Ian Ashbee, Mark Yeates; Jon Parkin, Stuart Elliott.
Subs: Matt Duke, Danny Coles, Dean Marney, Nick Barmby, Darryl Duffy.
