The centre-half has declared himself available after struggling with a back injury and should be fine to resume his partnership with David Mirfin.

There is bad news for manager Nigel Adkins, though, with striker Gary Hooper and midfielder Josh Wright both unlikely to be involved.

The pair have been laid low by a virus all week and have struggled to train, with Jonathan Forte preparing to come in for Hooper, while Martyn Woolford would replace Wright.

Marcus Williams is also struggling with a leg injury and normal left-back deputy Ian Morris has a knee problem, so George Friend could make his debut.

Ben May remains sidelined with an ankle problem.
