Manager Harry Kewell made five changes in midweek but will bring back the likes of on-loan Leeds midfielder Alfie McCalmont, George Blackwood, Conor McAleny and Ben Garrity.
Morecambe manger Derek Adams looks set to name an unchanged side for the third successive match.
On-loan Burnley striker Adam Phillips will continue to lead the line after three goals in four league matches.
