Nuneaton vs Grimsby: Cowan an option for Wilkin
Nuneaton boss Kevin Wilkin could include Gavin Cowan in his starting XI when his side play host to league leaders Grimsby.
The defender, who recently served a four-match suspension, returned to Wilkin's squad as an unused substitute for Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Southport and could return to first-team action.
Ben McNamara is expected to keep his place between the sticks, despite facing stiff competition from Coventry loanee Lee Burge.
Midfielder David McNamee could return to the starting line-up after recovering from a knee injury.

Luton winger James Dance played for 62 minutes on Saturday having joined on loan at the end of January and he is expected to retain his place in the side.
Midfielder Mark Noon (broken leg) is a long-term absentee.
Grimsby's joint bosses Paul Hurst and Rob Scott will run the rule over Andi Thanoj ahead of the trip.
Thanoj broke his nose while on international duty with Albania's Under-21 squad last week and is rated as doubtful.
On-loan winger Jamie Devitt missed Saturday's 1-0 win over Telford through illness and looks set to sit this one out too as he continues his recovery.
Meanwhile, striker Liam Hearn remains sidelined with the serious Achilles injury that has kept him out of the leaders' line-up since the beginning of the season.
Strikers Ross Hannah, Andy Cook and Richard Brodie will compete for two places up front, with Brodie likely to keep his place in the starting XI after scoring his side's only goal against AFC Telford.
