Justin Whittle
Justin Whittle - still missing due to hamstring injury
Whittle is still out with a hamstring injury, while Joseph serves a one-match ban. That leaves Taylor with few options as to who can partner John Anderson in defence. Damien Delaney could move inside from left-back, while neither Greg Strong nor Steve Burton appear to be at full fitness.

Midfielder Dean Keates is also looking unlikely to be fit, still struggling with an ankle injury. Meanwhile, Mike Edwards, Ryan Williams and Richie Appleby are all set to return to training next week.

No other changes are expected to be made after the win against Bristol Rovers last week, as Taylor has failed to bring in a new forward in time for the game.

Expected line-up (4-3-3): Musselwhite; Regan, Anderson, Delaney, Holt; Green, Ashbee, Melton; Dudfield, Alexander, Elliott.
Subs: Deeney, Smith, Peat, Jevons, Webb.
