Dean Keates
Dean Keates - ruled out due to suspension
Keates serves a one match ban tomorrow after collecting five yellow cards. Ian Ashbee is available after completing a similar suspension last week, and will take his place in midfield.

Meanwhile, loan pair Branch and Deeney have been denied permission from their clubs to play in the game to avoid becoming cup-tied. Phil Jevons or Stuart Elliott will come in for Branch, while 16-year-old Danny Harvey could get Deeney's place on the bench.

Matt Bloomer and Ben Petty both come into contention after returning from loan spells but neither are expected to be included. Greg Strong and Shaun Smith are also available after recovering from injuries, while Mike Edwards and Lawrie Dudfield will still be missing.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Musselwhite; Regan, Whittle, Anderson, Burton; Green, Ashbee, Delaney, Williams; Alexander, Jevons.
Subs: Harvey, Strong, Peat, Elliott, Jevons.
