Lee Naylor makes his return from injury tonight.

The homegrown left-back has missed the last 4 games with patella tendonitis a long standing injury that was aggravated against Sheffield Wednesday.

Treatment, including an injection, has helped to settle the problem and he is once again fit and raring to go.

Sammy Clingan also returns after apparently having seen his move to Nottingham Forest collapse. Clingan left the field in tears at the weekend having completed his last game for Forest and appeared unconsoleable.

The two are joined by Rohan Ricketts and Michael Oakes, the team in full being :

Oakes, Ricketts, Naylor, Lowe, Riley, Rafferty, Cornes, Clingan, Stewart, O’Connor, Jones. Subs: Little, Harrison, Fitzpatrick, Ferran, Spalding.

The match will be played at the Athletics Arena, Sportscity next to the City of Manchester Stadium. Kick-off is at 19:00
