Meanwhile, Appleby will be available for the first time this season. A specialist has advised the club to give him match time in order to heal his knee injury, and he is expected to start tonight.
Mike Price also returns to the fold after missing the Cambridge game with Wales Under-21 duty.

Expected line-up (4-3-3): Glennon; Regan, Whittle, Anderson, Smith; Keates, Ashbee, Appleby; Johnson, Alexander, Jevons.
Subs from: Musselwhite, Edwards, Price, Peat, Green, Williams, Bradshaw.
