Hassell, sidelined with an Achilles injury sustained in the defeat at Leicester at the end of last month, trained with the first-team squad on Thursday and could start in new manager Mark Robins' first game.

Malta international Bogdanovic turned his ankle in training on Wednesday and will be sidelined for at least three weeks.

Central defender Darren Moore has been struggling in recent weeks with a foot problem that has required injections, but is expected to start.

Goalkeeper Luke Steele remains three to four weeks away from a return to first-team action due to a broken finger, so summer signing David Preece should make his debut.
