Striker Chris Killen, who like O'Neil, scored in Tuesday night's 2-1 home win over Barnsley, is also struggling after picking up a hamstring strain.

However, Emanuel Pogatetz and Scott McDonald, who both played the full 90 minutes in midweek despite not being fully match fit, suffered no ill-effects and should be available again.

Julio Arca, who has missed the last two games with a toe problem, is unlikely to return, while Chris Riggott (hamstring), Rhys Williams (pelvic injury) and Jeremie Aliadiere (ankle surgery) are back in light training.

Seb Hines (ankle and knee ligament) and Matthew Bates (cruciate ligament) remain on the sidelines.
