Dickinson, on loan from Stoke until the end of the season, was replaced at half-time in Saturday's goalless draw with Crystal Palace and has had a scan on injured knee ligaments.

Manager Mark Robins expects Nathan Doyle to be fit after he was forced out of the action on Saturday due to a migraine although goalkeeper Steele is available again.

Steele sat out the weekend draw following his sending-off the previous week at Newcastle, for which he served a one-game ban, and Robins must decide whether to recall him or keep faith with David Preece, who was in fine form against Palace.

Darren Moore, left out of the squad altogether at the weekend, is likely to be recalled if Dickinson fails a late fitness test, while Luke Potter provides Robins with other options in defence.
