Gaving Gunning is a doubt for this fixture, after going off on Tuesday night with a broken nose and fractured eye socket. Jamie Grimes will most likely come in to replace the injured defender, after he put in a battling performance on Tuesday.

Kabongo Tshimanga, who recorded his 11th goal of the season against Eastleigh, will be looking to add to his tally.

Jim Kellermann limped off injured on Tuesday and the midfielder will be hoping he has fully recovered in time for the game.

Jeff King is one yellow card away from suspension, meaning if the defender picks up a booking in the fixture, he will miss the next league match.
