Goalkeeper Owen Foster’s shoulder scan following his substitution against Chesterfield on Boxing Day returned clear, however Nelson did say the game on New Year’s Day may “come too soon” for the shot-stopper.
Winger Rob Apter is available to play on New Year’s Day, however a knee scan result may cast doubt on his availability to play his final game before the conclusion of the existing loan deal.
Defender Reagan Ogle (thigh) is to be assessed ahead of the game again following his doubt on Boxing Day too.
Attacker Caolan Lavery is available with a few weeks still remaining on his deal with United.
Liam Feeney & Kgosi Nthle (hamstrings) continue to miss out through their respective injuries.
