He will serve a one match suspension due to the two yellow cards he received in the league game at Tranmere.

Monthe was due to serve the ban against Swindon Town last Saturday or AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday night, but both games were called off due to frozen pitches.

A club spokesman confirmed the ban would be carried over to cup ties if it hadn’t been served during league games.
