Mark Greaves - proud to lead Tigers
Rowe is out with concussion suffered in Saturday's win at Halifax. City have both Roberts and Lawrie Dudfield available to replace him, with the former expected to get the nod, and Dudfield being recalled to the bench.

Defenders Justin Whittle (hamstring), Ian Goodison (thigh) and Ben Petty (leg) are all still out, while Nicky Mohan may have recovered from a bug to be back in the squad. However, Mark Greaves and Matthew Wicks are expected to continue their partnership after keeping a clean sheet on Saturday.

Greaves is also expected to retain captaincy of the side, an honour that makes the 26-year-old Hull-born defender very proud.
"We've won both matches when I've been captain, but I don't want to tempt fate too much by talking about that.
"I enjoyed leading the side on Saturday and I'm the proudest man around after captaining my hometown club - and winning a game as well."

Andy Holt is hoping that his ankle will hold up to take on the 'Monkey Hangers'. The left-back injured it during the first half at Halifax but carried on playing for the rest of the match. If he isn't fit to play then Jason Van Blerk may be given the chance to make his Tigers debut.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Musselwhite; Edwards, Greaves, Wicks, Holt; Williams, Johnsson, Sneekes, Beresford; Alexander, Roberts.
Subs from: Glennon, Mohan, Van Blerk, Morley, Philpott, Whitmore, Dudfield.
