Andy Monkhouse starts this afternoon’s League One match at Walsall in one of two changes from manager John Hughes.
The midfielder starts his first game since the beginning of October after recovering from an ankle injury and he replaces an injured Simon Walton in the eleven.
Jordan Richards is also recalled to the starting line-up as he replaces the suspended Neil Austin at right back.
