The duo are back from suspension and are likely to go straight back into the starting line-up, meaning teenage defender Jazz Richards will lose his place.

Leon Britton could also come back into Paulo Sousa's thoughts after being relegated to the bench for the midweek draw with Bristol City while Ferrie Bodde is pushing for a starting spot after proving his fitness with 21 minutes against the Robins.

Darren Pratley (shoulder) and Thomas Butler (hernia) remain out, though, as does striker Stephen Dobbie who has a hip problem.

But Mark Gower (ankle) is likely to be fit while striker Gorka Pintado is available and will challenge Craig Beattie and Lee Trundle for a place in attack.

Cedric van der Gun will also hope to get the nod up front and Besian Idrizaj will fancy his chances of playing after scoring a hat-trick for the reserves on Wednesday.
