Hinds, restricted to nine appearances this season, is struggling with a heel problem while midfielder Michael Gray, goalkeeper Lee Grant and Tommy Spurr have all been feeling unwell.

Grant has been unable to train all week but caretaker-manager Sean McAuley is hoping the trio will be available for the third-round tie at Hillsborough.

Leon Clarke is expected to partner Marcus Tudgay up front following Luke Varney's return to parent club Derby while Frank Simek and Tom Soares, on loan from Stoke, will be hoping to retain their places in the starting line-up.

Wednesday's scheduled league clash at Blackpool on Monday fell foul of the weather.
