Coulthirst forms a front two with Tom Nichols who is also re-instated after missing Tuesday’s dismal defeat at the hands of MK Dons in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Coulthirst hasn’t featured since the 6-1 home defeat by Norwich City in the Checkatrade Trophy on August 30. He was made available for transfer the following day.

Teenager Deon Moore drops to the substitutes’ bench as does on-loan midfielder George Moncur.
