The Whites will definitely be without Alan Sheehan who had a reoccurrence of his hamstring injury in the Rotherham game.
After making eight changes for the midweek game boss Gary McAllister will probably revert back to last Saturday`s side at Peterborough.

Albion boss Mickey Adams will give a late fitness test to last weekend`s hat trick hero Glenn Murray who picked up a thigh strain in that game.
With fellow striker Nicky Forster still sidelined the Seagulls may have to go with Adam Virgo and Joe Anyinsah.
Matt Richards and Jake Robinson both have knocks and will face late fitness tests.
