The forward missed the weekend defeat of Bristol City after sustaining a hamstring a problem in training on Friday and boss Nigel Clough is unsure whether he will recover sufficiently to be included in the squad.

One player definitely out is Stephen Pearson (groin). The midfielder also missed the game against the Robins with an injury sustained in training last week. Scans have revealed a slight tear that will keep him sidelined for around a month.

Captain Paul Connolly finished Saturday's match despite carrying a foot injury and Clough will hope he is fit enough to continue at full-back.

Dean Leacock could be rested after making only his second start in 10 months following a serious knee injury against City and Miles Addison may return to partner Shaun Barker at the heart of the defence.
