Fonte back from ban for Bankss battle

The Portuguese centre-half, who was this week linked with a move to Alan Pardew's Newcastle, missed last Saturday's defeat by Brentford through suspension and should come straight back into the side.

Boss Nigel Adkins has problems in attack, however, as Rickie Lambert needs a late fitness test after suffering a dead leg last week and Lee Barnard is still on the sidelines with an ongoing groin problem.

Three-goal Brazilian Guly Do Prado could therefore start up front again.

Full-back Frazer Richardson (thigh) and midfielder Richard Chaplow (Achilles) missed out against the Bees and could return but winger Lee Holmes is a long-term absentee with an ankle injury.
