Forgotten man Freddie Piquionne will face Bishops Stortford at Woodside Park tomorrow night - whilst Sam Allardyce's first team attempt to return to the top of the Championship.
Allardyce takes his team to Blackpool tomorrow night with view to returning to the top of the table, having been replaced by Southampton whose comprehensive 4-0 defeat of Derby on Saturday saw them move above West Ham.
But one man definitely out of the picture is the French striker, who has been dumped into Ian Hendon's development squad who will face the Blue Square North side at the same time as the first team squad are playing at Bloomfield Road.
Piquionne was made surplus to requirements by Allardyce after a desperately disappointing start to the current campaign during which he managed to score just two goals from 21 appearances.
Earlier this month the 33-year-old, signed by Avram Grant in July 2010, was linked with a loan move to Championship strugglers Doncaster.
However the move - which would have taken Piquonne to the Keepmoat Stadium for the remainder of the season - fell through leaving the Frenchman, who has more than a year of his three-year contract left to run, languishing in the reserves.
Supporters wishing to attend the game - that kicks off at 7:45pm - can buy tickets on the door; prices are £8 for adults, £5 concessions and £2 for under 16s.
