The left-back was sent off in stoppage time of the 3-1 win at Plymouth on Tuesday night after picking up his second booking and will sit out a one-match ban.

Teenager Adam Matthews, who made his senior debut in midweek, will keep his place at right-back and Jones is hoping Mark Kennedy is fit again to return on the left in Capaldi's place.

Kennedy has been nursing a calf injury but should be fit. Midfielder Stephen McPhail is close to a return from a hamstring problem and could feature while Joe Ledley and Chris Burke have recovered from illness.

Gabor Gyepes is fit after a knee injury but full-back Kevin McNaughton (ankle) remains four or five weeks away from full fitness.

Scotland international Ross McCormack will be sidelined for between six to eight weeks with a hamstring injury.

The match kicks off at 1.15pm.

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...
