Port Vale will welcome back their big guns for the home clash with struggling Walsall.
Vale boss John Askey made seven changes for the Leasing.com Trophy penalty shoot-out win over Mansfield with the Saddlers’ Sky Bet League Two visit in mind.
Goalkeeper Scott Brown, defender Leon Legge and striker Tom Pope are among those set to return.
Midfielder David Worrall was allowed to play in midweek, but he serves the second game of a three-match ban for his involvement in the recent final-whistle melee at Scunthorpe.
Walsall have only one league win since the end of September and are two places and five points above bottom-placed Morecambe.
The Saddlers were buoyed by a midweek Leasing.com Trophy win over Chelsea Under-21s, but the victory was marred by a nasty injury to Callum Cockerill-Mollett.
The Saddlers fear the young left-back could be out for several weeks.
Dan Scarr, Danny Guthrie and Elijah Adebayo are all in contention after starting the FA Cup defeat to Oxford on the bench, but injured pair Stuart Sinclair and Cameron Pring could again miss out.
