Willis Francis
The youth teamer has made 4 sub appearances so far this season against Blackpool, Bristol City home and away and Oldham and with Michael Brough missing from the midfield due to suspension, the young hardworking midfielder could be drafted in for his first start.

Francis has impressed in the youth and reserve teams this season, and gave another highly impressive performance in the reserves yesterday as they went down 2-1 against Scunthorpe United.

"It could be time to give Willis his debut," Billy Dearden told the Evening Post.

"It is certainly looking to be the strongest option at the moment."
