Experienced forward Ellison, who fired a spectacular 12th goal of the season during the 3-0 win over Rochdale early this month - a triumph that co-incided with him penning an extended contract at the Globe Arena - collected his 10th booking this term during Tuesday night's 1-1 draw with Northampton and must now begin a two-match ban.

Goalkeeper Barry Roche is set to return in place of Andreas Arestidou having served a one-match suspension of his own due to a red card in last weekend's 4-1 loss at Barnet.

Elsewhere, defender Andy Parrish remains on the sidelines as he continues to struggle with a troublesome thigh complaint.
