Dave Jones has made two changes to his starting eleven for this afternoon’s Sky Bet League Two game against Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road (3pm kick-off).
Kenton Richardson has failed to recover in time from an ankle injury so Carl Magnay comes in for his first start since rupturing his cruciate ligament in September.
Elsewhere, Nicky Deverdics is restored to the starting line-up with Michael Woods having to be content with a place among the substitutes.
