Hughton intends to rest key men for the third-round trip to London Road on Tuesday ahead of Saturday's Championship visit to Ipswich and that could mean opportunities for the likes of Nile Ranger, Kazenga LuaLua, Tamas Kadar, Ryan Donaldson and Haris Vuckic.

Loan signing Zurab Khizanishvili is ineligible for the game having already played in the second round of the competition for Blackburn at Gillingham.

Full-back Danny Simpson is a doubt after jarring an ankle in Saturday's 3-1 win over Plymouth Argyle, while Shola Ameobi (foot) and Jonas Gutierrez (hamstring) remain on the sidelines.
