Hendrie strained his hamstring in last weekend's FA Cup tie against Millwall and is unlikely to feature until next weekend's trip to Peterborough.

But fellow midfielder Lee Croft has recovered from illness to put himself back in contention, while on-loan striker DJ Campbell is available after being ineligible to play in the FA Cup.

New loan signing Lee Johnson will be pushing for a starting role after coming off the bench to feature against the Lions, while Luke Varney is available after suspension.

Shaun Barker, who has missed the last seven games with a thigh problem, is hoping to play in the reserves next week. But defender Dean Leacock is unlikely to feature this month as he continues to battle against a knee injury.
