Coles absent for daunting Dons trip

30 October 2009 03:11
The former Hull man - who was beset by knee problems for the best part of last season - missed the midweek defeat to Leeds as a result of the injury and is to see a specialist to determine the extent of the damage.

His absence means that Steve Elliott is likely to continue in the back four, although Chris Lines (shin) could make a late claim to be involved.

Dominic Blizzard and Andy Williams - like Elliott - were given rare starts against Leeds, but the 4-0 loss to Simon Grayson's side could prompt Paul Trollope into making changes.

Striker Darryl Duffy is one that could profit from such a move, while winger Mark Wright will be desperate to face his former club.

The Pirates have lost their last four games, conceding 13 goals in the process.
