The on-loan Wigan midfielder was sent off for the second time in two matches against Reading on Tuesday and begins a two-match ban, so Gavin Mahon could earn a recall.

Boss Jim Magilton will hand late checks to Mikele Leigertwood and Jay Simpson.

Midfielder Leigertwood has missed the last two games due to a virus, and on-loan Arsenal forward Jay Simpson limped out of the 4-1 win over Reading with a leg knock.

In-form Rangers are still without skipper Martin Rowlands, who will miss the rest of the season with a cruciate injury, defender Matthew Connolly (glandular fever), midfielder Hogan Ephraim (ankle) and striker Angelo Balanta (groin).
