Tierney returns for Bulls cup trip
Tierney missed Tuesday's 2-0 win over Stockport through suspension and should return at left-back. Loanees Danny Baath, John-Joe O'Toole, Kevin Lisbie and Kayode Odejayi have all been given permission to play in the competition. Striker Steven Gillespie is pushing for his first start since March after a number of impressive cameos from the bench this season. Defender Paul Reid will hope to keep his place after coming through 90 minutes unscathed in midweek on his return from a long-term lay-off with a knee injury. Lee Beevers (shoulder) and Ashley Vincent (ankle) are still sidelined and youngster Medy Elito serves the final game of his three-match ban.
