The young striker, whose goalscoring exploits since his October arrival have reportedly attracted the attention of several rival clubs, played for Poole Town earlier this season.

On-loan striker Alex Revell is also unavailable due to the terms of his loan agreement from Southend but Celtic duo Simon Ferry and Ben Hutchinson, Leeds full-back Alan Sheehan and Bolton striker Danny Ward have all been cleared to play.

Alan O'Brien, meanwhile, has suffered another injury setback after his recent return. The winger was forced off after 35 minutes of Monday's victory over Yeovil nursing another hamstring problem, this time to his other leg, and he looks set for a couple of weeks on the sidelines.

Craig Easton (calf) is back in training and hoping to be involved sooner rather than later while fellow midfielder Michael Timlin will be keen to play some part against his former employers.

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...
