The on-loan Bristol City forward begins a three-match ban after his red card in last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Oldham, so will miss the whole of the festive period.

His loan spell expires in the middle of January but he will be available for the fixtures with Leeds and Charlton.

Matt Harrold came off the bench to score the equaliser against the Latics and should return to the starting line-up in Akinde’s place.

Waddock is also without midfielder Lewis Montrose (knee) and defender Leon Johnson (hip), who are both recovering from recent operations and will be sidelined for at least another two weeks.
