Chuks Aneke, who is on loan from the Gunners, is not available under the terms of his deal with the npower League One club.

Provisional squad: Julian, Wilson, Laird, Charles, Ashton, Edwards, Long, Reid, Myrie-Williams, May, Byrom, Roberts, Freeman, Day, Winn, Cowan, Thalassitis, Beardsley, Sinclair, Bostwick, Henry, Shroot.
