Deji Oshilaja will hope to keep his place having dislodged Victor Adeboyejo for the Ipswich loss.

Port Vale wing-backs Lewis Cass and Mal Benning will be ready to return after being rotated and rested.

Chris Hussey and Sammy Robinson started in the wide defensive roles for the 2-1 loss at MK Dons but could now be switched out again.

Gavin Massey was stood down from the MK Dons game as a precaution and could be back in contention.

Dave Worrall is working his way back to fitness but will not be ready to feature this weekend.
