Zola: Remains sidelined

Zola: Remains sidelined

Alex go into the tie on the back of a morale-boosting 7-0 league victory over Barnet on Saturday.

Calvin Zola missed that game with a knee injury and last season's top goal scorer is likely to remain sidelined, meaning Joel Grant will keep his place in the team.

Manager Dario Gradi told the club's official website: "I don't think I will be making any changes to the team after Saturday.

"It is not often you have a result like that and if I was to leave anyone out after a 7-0 win, I would expect them to be knocking on my door."

Youngster Nick Powell, a substitute at the weekend, is unavailable as he is away on international duty with the England Under-17 squad.
