Chris Stokes makes his full return to first-team action after nursing a knee injury for the past eight months...
Russell Slade elects to make eight changes to the side that started against Bolton last time out, with Jodi Jones and Ruben Lameiras earning a recall.

Vladimir Gadzhev and Gael Bigirimana anchor the midfield, with George Thomas on the right and Ruben Lameiras on the left. Jodi Jones will operate as a No.10, with Stuart Beavon the target man.
