However, Neil had to make a change to the coaching staff for the game after first-team coach Frankie McAvoy was forced to self-isolate due to track and trace.

It meant Paul Gallagher stepped-up to help out with coaching duties alongside Neil and Steve Thompson.

With Gallagher vacating his place among the substitutes, Tom Bayliss was named on the bench.

However, Fisher did make the trip to West Yorkshire with the squad.
