Goalkeeper Tommy Lee misses out through injury after the stitches on a leg gash burst open in midweek.

It’s not expected that the fan favourite will be out for much longer than today’s game however.

And club captain Ian Evatt has been ‘given a week off’ by the manager after what Caldwell called ‘poor performances.’
