Jack Compton starts in place of the injured Andy Monkhouse in the only change to Colin Cooper’s starting eleven.
Compton replaced Monkhouse after just 14 minutes of Saturday’s win over Bristol Rovers and put in a bright display, earning him a starting berth this evening.
Michael Duckworth returns to the squad for tonight’s match – his first involvement since being stretchered off in the early moments of the match at Northampton Town on February 22nd.
