El-Abd has been on crutches with his foot encased in a protective boot during the week.

Adam Virgo is pushing for a start after making an impressive late cameo role in the victory over Wycombe on Monday and dismissing reports he is poised to quit the club.

Skipper Andrew Crofts and striker Liam Dickinson are available to manager Gus Poyet after serving suspensions and are set to return to the starting XI.

Defender Colin Hawkins remains sidelined with an ongoing heel problem while Poyet is hoping to extend the loan of Arsenal defender Gavin Hoyte.
