Sheridan optimistic over influential duo

Both players missed out on Monday with tight hamstrings. Allott has missed the last two matches and top scorer Davies was rested against Accrington.

Right-back Jack Hunt will also be hoping for a recall after his introduction as a substitute at the Crown Ground. The on-loan Huddersfield defender lifted his side, who were 2-0 and heading for defeat.

Fellow subs Deane Smalley and Scott Boden, who scored the last-gasp goals that earned the league leaders an undeserved draw, will hope they caught the eye of Sheridan, who described the performance against Stanley as his side`s worst of the season.

Drew Talbot took a nasty knock on a knee in that game but carried on and he is expected to be fit. However, it is touch and go with fellow forward Dean Morgan who is still nursing the ankle injury he sustained against Stockport.
