And Ali Crawford makes his long-awaited return to the squad with a place among the substitutes following his return from injury.

Whiteman misses the trip to Home Park after picking up his fifth booking of the season in last weekend's win over Bradford City.

With plenty of options available, boss Grant McCann has opted for Peterborough United loanee Anderson as the replacement.

Crawford makes his first appearance in a senior matchday squad since the opening day of the season when he suffered a knee injury.
