Torquay United defender Shaun Cooper is available for the first time since joining the Gulls in January, the 30-year-old being placed on the bench for today's League Two clash against Scunthorpe United.
Meanwhile, winger Gary McSheffrey has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a hamstring injury, while Terry Hawkridge also misses out, so Matthew Sparrow and Paul Hayes come in for the unavailable duo.
Scunthorpe have the chance to climb to the top of League Two if they win today and title rivals Rochdale lose.
