Ian Ashbee serves a one-match ban for picking up five yellow cards, while Nick Barmby is also suspended, serving out the last of his three-match ban.

Stuart Elliott is of course still out with a fractured cheekbone, while Marc Joseph, Roland Edge, Ryan France, Richard Hinds and Alton Thelwell are also injured.

Peter Taylor also has to choose who to start with in attack. He may stick with Danny Allsopp and Aaron Wilbraham after they both found the net in City's last game, against Stockport, but also has Delroy Facey and Jon Walters available.

Taylor also has to select a captain for the day in the absence of Ian Ashbee and Marc Joseph. Damien Delaney and Junior Lewis are candidates.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Myhill; Angus, Cort, Delaney, Dawson; France, Lewis, Keane, Green; Allsopp, Wilbraham.
Subs: Duke, Wiseman, Price, Walters, Facey.
