Front Pair Rested

Last updated : 31 August 2004 By Andy Beill
Danny Allsopp and Stuart Elliott will both sit out to give Delroy Facey and Jon Walters places in the starting eleven for the first time this season.

Goalkeeper Matt Duke will make his first start since moving from Burton Albion after Boaz Myhill suffered a hip injury in Saturday's win against Oldham.

Midfielder Junior Lewis has a sore knee but Ian Ashbee should be okay to play. Centre forward Aaron Wilbraham serves the last of a three-game ban.

Summer signing Roland Edge may make his debut at left-back, with Andy Dawson being rested, while the likes of Richard Hinds, Ryan France, Jason Price and Michael Keane are also likely starters.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Duke; Hinds, Joseph, Delaney, Edge; Price, Ashbee, Keane, France; Facey, Walters.
