Speaking after Tuesday's defeat to Barnsley, Moore said: “We think it’s good news with Mallik. If he keeps continuing what he’s doing – he’s just building up volume in training – then he’s looking good. I didn’t want to risk him and have him on the bench, but we think that he’s in a better stage.

“If he can continue over the next few days then we think he’ll be in a position – so we feel confident with him.”

Defenders Ben Heneghan and Michael Ihiekwe are set to miss out and the game comes too soon for George Byers and Josh Windass.
