Facey suffered a hamstring towards the end of last week's draw at Wrexham, and Taylor says he hasn't recovered in time. He has the option of moving top-scorer Stuart Elliott up front, but says he will instead recall either Danny Allsopp or Jon Walters to partner Nick Barmby.

Taylor has hinted at a recall for Jason Price so Stuart Green can move back to his natural position in central midfield. Junior Lewis would be the obvious player to drop out, or he may even be moved back to bolster the defence which has been leaking sloppy goals recently.

Andy Dawson is set to keep his place at left-back. The position has been contested between him and Roland Edge over the last two weeks, but Edge misses out with a shoulder injury.

Michael Keane may return to the bench after missing last week's game due to a family illness.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Myhill; Joseph, Cort, Delaney, Dawson; Price, Ashbee, Green, Elliott; Barmby, Allsopp.
Subs: Brock, Lewis, Keane, France, Walters.
