The 21-year-old has been out for the last three games after being sent off at Scunthorpe. He may walk straight back into the side at full back.

Ian Goodison may miss out due to a thigh injury. Matthew Wicks and Justin Whittle are expected to form the central defensive partnership as Brian Little reverts back to a 4-4-2 formation.

Young forward Gary Bradshaw is on the virge of getting into the first team squad, but the Tigers boss is refusing to blame Lawrie Dudfield or Gary Alexander for the side failing to score in the last four games.

Little says that he will field an "adventurous" line-up in order to find the net against the Cumbrians tomorrow. With that in mind, David Beresford, Ryan Williams and Richard Sneekes are expected to be recalled.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Musselwhite; Petty, Whittle, Wicks, Edwards; Williams, Sneekes, Whitmore, Beresford; Alexander, Dudfield.
Subs from: Glennon, Mohan, Goodison, Van Blerk, Holt, Greaves, Johnsson, Matthews, Bradshaw, Rowe.
