The stopper will come into the side for his maiden League One first team appearance in place of Joe Murphy.

Murphy is suspended after picking up five yellow cards so far this season, and he looks set to miss out along with captain Andy Crosby - who is absent for the same reason.

However, both players will be back for the visit of Chesterfield on Boxing Day.

Ian Baraclough looks poised to come back into the midfield as Richard Hinds drops back to centre back in place of Crosby.

The home side could be without striker Ben May, who is struggling with a groin injury.

However, experienced duo Richard Shaw and Neal Ardley shpuld be back in the squad.

Ex-Leeds and Chelsea man Jody Morris misses out through injury.
