Todd gave a debut to 11 players on Saturday but the new-look Quakers sank to a 3-1 opening day defeat at Aldershot.

However, on-loan Sunderland youngster David Dowson came off the bench to net a late consolation goal for Todd's side.

Dowson could now push for a starting berth along with midfielder Jamie Chandler, also on loan from the Black Cats.

Todd has been given permission to use both players against Leeds and their initial 28-day loans could be extended.

Todd said: "Dowson's movement is good, he works very hard and he gets in behind people which is important. Jamie's a tough midfielder and he's played for England at all levels."
