The winger drops to the bench to accommodate Ronan Curtis on the left flank for this afternoon’s Memorial Stadium encounter.

That represents the only change from the side which won against Lincoln in the week.

Ross McCrorie will continue at right-back, with Ryan Williams retaining his position on the right of the attacking three.
