Striker Rob Hulse made his first start of the season following groin surgery at Blackpool in midweek and he showed no reaction so will again lead the line, while Kris Commons has overcome a niggle picked up at Bloomfield Road.

Steve Davies has fully recovered from a hamstring strain and has been declared fit, so Clough must now decide whether to start the midfielder or use him from the bench. Paul Green could also be involved despite a foot injury.

Jake Livermore is also available after completing his suspension carried over from his parent club Tottenham but Giles Barnes and Chris Porter remain sidelined.

New signing Medi Abalimba, who joined from Southend on Thursday, won't be involved.

The Problem With FA Cup Shocks...

...is that the draw for the next round is pretty shocking. Blackburn v Stoke, anybody? We also have mails on LVG and ManUnited, who drew plenty under Fergie...

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
