Captain Josh Wright could retain his place in the side along with Australian defensive midfielder Chris Herd and forward Frank Nouble, who signed a short-term deal to start the home defeat against Oldham.

Midfielder Billy Knott will be assessed after being a late withdrawal from the bench last week and defender Ryan Jackson could be involved again following a hip problem.

Full-back Bradley Garmston (knee), defender Aaron Morris (knee) and midfielder Lee Martin (ankle) all continue their recoveries.
