With nine players missing for the midweek visit of Lincoln City manager Jon Brady is continuing to manage his squad with care.
“It has been a really tough period for us and I’ve had to manage players minutes,” he said.
“We are not going to take any risks with anyone but we feel it is important to get our best side out there.
“It is a bit of a balancing act and there is a trade off at the moment but that’s where we are at and we will be at for a week or two longer yet but hopefully we will come out the other side of that soon.
"The nature of our second half performance on Tuesday shows we are getting there."
