Phil Jevons - expected to play
Lawrie Dudfield misses out through injury, so Jan Molby will pick between Jevons, Gary Alexander, Simon Johnson and Gary Bradshaw for the 3 forward places in the side.

Stuart Green and Greg Strong serve the last of their three match suspensions, while Richie Appleby remains sidelined with a knee injury. Appleby saw a specialist today, and surgery may be the only way to cure the tendonitis problem which has kept him out all season. Such surgery could rule him out until the new year, and Molby describes it as the "worst possible scenario."

The inclusion of Jevons is likely to be the only change in the starting eleven, although midfielders Scott Kerr, Nathan Peat and Lee Philpott have all travelled with the squad.

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