There are also starts for Oli Hawkins and Adam May, as Kenny Jackett makes three changes from the side beaten at Southend on Saturday.
Brett Pitman and Gareth Evans drop out through injury, while Nathan Thompson starts a four-match ban.
Matt Clarke is handed the captain’s armband in Pitman’s absence, while a fit-again Jack Whatmough joins academy player Dan Smith on the bench.
