City squad boosted by long-awaited return to fitness of Kwame Thomas, while Michael Folivi may be included in match-day 18...
Striker Stuart Beavon is an injury concern, as City prepare for a bottom of the table clash with Oldham Athletic.
The 32-year old was forced off at half-time midweek, and will be assessed ahead of the trip to Greater Manchester on Saturday. The manager has also confirmed that midfielder Ben Stevenson is unlikely to be involved.
Russell Slade said: “Beavon is a major concern, not trained yet. We’ll give him every chance, it isn’t looking great.
“A few have had problems over recent weeks, Ben Stevenson is another who is a doubt. He isn’t 100%. We’ll have to wait and assess those.
“Games are coming thick and fast and we need a fit squad.”
