There was a change on the bench though, Connor Wickham included in the squad for the first time after signing a short-term contract with PNE earlier in the week.

Wickham took the place of Alan Browne among the substitutes, the club captain missing with a knock.

It was a fourth game in a row that McAvoy had named the same starting line-up, a big show of faith in them.
