TEAM NEWS

Hill has given an update on the injuries within the squad heading into the tie.

“Niall Canavan and Keith Keane are now long-term, with season ending injuries,” said Hill.

“Steve Davies is two or three weeks away. Joe Thompson could potentially return to the squad.

“We’re going to run with the same sort of squad that we had when we played Doncaster in the FA Cup.”

The three loan additions this window of Billy Knott, Sam Hart and Alex Dobre are all ineligible to play, having appeared in the competition already for previous clubs.
