Danns has been suffering with back spasms recently and had to come off half an hour into Wednesday night's defeat by Reading, making him doubtful.

Ambrose was limping towards the end of the match after a heavy challenge but boss Neil Warnock expects his 16-goal top scorer to be fit.

Warnock was unhappy with his side's defending against the Royals and is set to hand a recall to veteran centre-half Matt Lawrence, who has been on the bench for the last two games following a hamstring injury.

Striker Alan Lee should also come back into the starting line-up.
