Collins was forced out of last week's defeat to AFC Wimbledon and although scans have revealed the injury is not as bad as first feared, the midfielder is unlikely to be risked, so Sean McAllister could return to the starting line-up in his absence.

On-loan Huddersfield striker Jimmy Spencer and summer signing Etienne Esajas (hamstring) made their first appearances off the substitutes bench last week and are in contention to start.

Matt Godden is hoping to return to the squad following a knee injury and fellow forwards Jamie Wootton and Jordan Clark, on loan from Barnsley, could also be recalled.

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
