The defender has been unable to train all week, and Jan Molby rates him as "very doubtful" to play.

With Greg Strong still out, Mike Edwards may be recalled to the side, while Matt Wicks could also be included in the squad for the first time this season.

Stuart Elliott made his return from injury in the Reserves on Wednesday, but is not expected to be rushed back into the first team.

New loan signing Michael Branch will make his debut, with either Gary Alexander or Phil Jevons dropping to the bench.

Paul Musselwhite will continue in goal, while Matt Glennon may not even be on the bench with his transfer to Carlisle still in the pipeline.

Expected line-up (4-4-2): Musselwhite; Regan, Anderson, Edwards, Smith; Green, Ashbee, Keates, Williams; Branch, Jevons.
Subs: Glennon, Wicks, Price, Dudfield, Alexander.
