Craig Hignett has made six changes to his starting line-up for this afternoon’s Sky Bet League Two game against Crawley Town at The Northern Gas and Power Stadium.
Toto Nsiala returns to the centre of defence after being suspended for the midweek game against Sunderland, while Jake Carroll is back in the side at left-back.
Nicky Deverdics is in a midfield, which also includes Lewis Hawkins who has managed to shake-off the sciatica problem which forced his substitution on Tuesday night.
Lewis Alessandra, Padraig Amond and Nathan Thomas also all return to the starting eleven after being rested for the Checkatrade Trophy fixture.
