Youga: Knee problem

More of the games that matter

Upgrade in minutes or watch with a NOW TV Day Pass.

Kelly Youga is still missing with a knee injury and his deputy, Grant Basey, is nursing a groin strain following Saturday's win over Wycombe.

Centre-half Sam Sodje serves the third game of his four-match ban but right-back Frazer Richardson could return to the back four.

Richardson came on as a second-half substitute at Adams Park having recovered from a hamstring injury.

Striker Deon Burton should keep his place in attack despite an ongoing hernia problem which will eventually need surgery. Boss Phil Parkinson must again choose between David Mooney, Chris Dickson and Leon McKenzie to partner his 12-goal top-scorer.

Midfielder Dean Sinclair, recently back from a loan spell at Barnet, is available after a one-match ban.
