The Irishman makes way for Gareth Evans on the left of the attacking three for the televised League One encounter.

Evans made a scoring entry from the bench in last weekend’s 4-1 triumph over Rochdale, having replaced Curtis.

Now the 30-year-old is rewarded with a start at the Pirelli Stadium, representing the only change to Kenny Jackett’s side.
