The 20-year-old will be making only his third appearance for the first team, and second start - With his first coming against Olympiakos last week.
A winger converted to left-back, it will be a further chance for him to show what he can do and enhance his chances of ousting Andre Santos as number two to Kieran Gibbs.
He played very well in Greece last week, so fans should be hopeful they get another look at him at Valley Parade.
If he is as good as one of his idols, they may not be complaining. For in an interview Q & A with Arsenal's official website, Meade reveals he used to pretend to be Ashley Cole in the playground, and even his school pals nicknamed him after the defender.
Cole was an Arsenal player who came through the academy and won trophies with the club, and in a later question when asked for his 'All-Time World XI' the inclusion of his idol can perhaps be called biased but justified.
But its the choice of Cole's Chelsea teammate which may bemuse fans - Meade has selected John Terry alongside Fabio Cannavaro as his dream central defence... of all time.
Here's his eleven: Schmeichel, Ramos, Cannavaro, Terry, Cole, Xavi, Ozil, Zidane, Maradona, Pele, Messi
That front four of Zidane, Pele, Maradona and Messi is truly frightening, we'll hand him that, but he might have to re-assess his centre-backs.
It's only trivial, but John Terry? All time? Surely as a Gooner he should be picking Tony Adams!
Who knows, after playing alongside Sebastien Squillaci last week, perhaps there is a late contender for his dream team...
Would John Terry get anywhere near your all-time best XI?
