TEAM NEWS

Following Saturday’s 1-0 win on the road against Northampton Town, Ross Embleton admits he is likely to rotate mid-week.

‘’They’ll certainly be changes to the team on Tuesday night to give people opportunities and minutes on the pitch.

It’s a competition where I feel we can give people a really good opportunity to play their way into the team. I maintain that’s always going to be the case.’’

Sam ling is likely to be ruled out after being forced off the pitch with an injury on Saturday. Lee Angol and Jamie Turley remain sidelined while Ruel Sotiriou and Hector Kyrpianou are on international duty with Cyprus.
