The centre-half, who recently had a hernia operation, is a notable absentee from the starting line-up having been taken ill.

The other change sees Gboly Ariyibi drop to the bench after a disappointing display in the 1-0 defeat by Port Vale.

Tom Anderson comes into the defence to cover for Hird while Jake Beesley will play up front with Ched Evans.
