Midfielder Stephen Gleeson injured his knee during the 1-0 defeat at Bristol Rovers on Easter Monday and has been ruled out for the rest of the season - though scans have shown that he should be back sooner than first expected.

Peter Leven would be first in line to replace Gleeson but is also out with an ankle injury while Ince has major problems in defence.

Mat Doumbe and David McCracken started at centre-half against Rovers but both are suspended. Doumbe was sent-off in stoppage time for his second booking while McCracken collected his 10th caution of the season to trigger a two-game ban.

James Tunnicliffe has missed the last two games through illness but should be fit to take one place, but Sean O'Hanlon is out with a knee injury so Darren Powell is likely to be pressed into service.

Goalkeeper Willy Gueret is still struggling with a groin injury so Stuart Searle should continue. Lewis Gobern (hamstring) and Sam Baldock (knee) complete the injury list.
