With Darryl Westlake suspended at right wing back, Lee Beevers won the race with Ritchie Sutton to replace him.
Paul Cox also opted for a battling central midfield with Lee Stevenson left out and Jamie McGuire returning.
Top scorer Sam Clucas, back from illness, could only make the bench, with striker Jake Speight also a welcome sight on there after coming through a midweek reserve game.
