Allen is edging closer to full fitness after a groin injury and returned to the bench in the 2-1 win against Bradford in midweek. Defender Ryan Cresswell remains sidelined through injury but is also closing in on a return. However, on-loan Leeds striker Tom Elliott has broken down in training on his return from a hamstring injury and will miss out. Andy Bishop will remain sidelined for at least another fortnight as he continues his recovery from an operation to repair both abductor muscles. Fellow frontman Danny Carlton is expected back in late January to early February as he recovers from a serious Achilles injury.
