Striker David McGoldrick is still nursing the knee ligament strain that ruled him out against QPR.
Back-up goalkeeper Karl Darlow also missed out last weekend with a shoulder problem and he remains sidelined.
Kelvin Wilson is receiving intensive treatment on the back problem that has seen him sit out the last three matches and the defender is still a doubt.
Dele Adebola may have forced his way into the starting line-up after impressing boss Billy Davies with a 30-minute cameo from the bench against QPR.
Fellow forwards Nathan Tyson and Robert Earnshaw will also be hoping for recalls.
