McAleny hobbled off with what looked like an ankle injury in Town’s 1-0 win over Northampton last weekend.

Rosler was as coy as ever about the extent of the striker’s injury but he is not fit enough to feature today with Saturday’s goal here Devante Cole elevated back into the starting line-up.

The German makes one further change to the side with Burnley loanee Aiden O’Neill handed his first league start in place of George Glendon who moves to the bench.
