Simon Gillett may also come into the side after being illegible for the cup game. Paul Tierney should be fit after taking a few knocks on Tuesday night.

Fox showed he could mix it with Safri on Tuesday night, cool and collected on the ball with some great distribution too. Let`s hope with one of those balls he`s able to release Parker who has gone six games without scoring.
