Defender Eiran Cashin received a straight red card in a 2-2 draw with Torquay United in the Emirates FA Cup on Sunday, however the club have successfully appealed the decision and the youngster will now be available for selection for the play. .

Manager Paul Warne also addressed the media before the match at Anfield and provided further updates on his players’ fitness.

It’s certainly not a complete squad to pick for the League One club, but that’s a similar problem we’re facing at the moment as well.

Let’s hope there are no more health problems for either team and that we can finish the game with a win and take another step towards Wembley.
