Jordan Willis has been deemed fit to start having been forced off after 45 minutes in the midweek tie with Morecambe...
Mark Venus elects to make four changes to the side that overcame Morecambe on Tuesday night, with Ruben Lameiras and Andre Wright restored to the attacking line.
Lee Burge remains in goal, with Lewis Page returning to left-back and Ryan Haynes dropping out. The midfield will be comprised of Gael Bigirimana, Ben Stevenson and Vladimir Gadzhev.
Fresh from his two goals midweek, Marvin Sordell will start through the middle with Lameiras and Wright for support.
