The right-back misses the final match of his initial month-long loan spell from Arsenal through suspension.

Andrew Whing has made a timely return to fitness following a hernia operation and is the ready-made replacement for Hoyte.

Poyet also has Arron Davies and Liam Dickinson available after both missed last week's 4-4 FA Cup draw against Wycombe.

Winger Davies was denied permission to play by parent club Nottingham Forest and striker Dickinson was axed for disciplinary reasons.

Midfielder Kevin McLeod is expected to shake off a knock so defenders Jim McNulty (ankle) and Colin Hawkins (heel) are the only injury absentees.

The match kicks off at 4.30pm.
