Chalobah, on loan with the Blues from Chelsea, has been withdrawn after suffering a minor knock in Saturday’s 3-2 win at Saturday.

Dozzell, along with fellow Town midfielder Flynn Downes, initially joined up with the squad only to train. However, the former Copleston High School pupil has now been called into the main party.
