Craig Hignett has made three changes to his starting eleven for this afternoon’s Sky Bet League Two game against Barnet at The Hive (3pm kick-off).
Matthew Bates has recovered from a back problem to return in the centre of defence where he will be partnered by Rob Jones who makes his debut after signing for the Club on Thursday.
Lewis Hawkins is also given the nod to start against The Bees, while Adam Bartlett returns to the bench after missing the trip to Bristol Rovers due to the birth of his first child.
Michael Woods is also named among the substitutes after he shook off a hamstring injury but Adam Jackson misses out on the game with a thigh strain.
