Barnsley are expected to be without winger Adam Hammill for the home clash with Coventry, but striker Garry O'Connor is available.
Hammill, who has attracted the attention of several Premier League clubs ahead of the January transfer window, was forced out of the action with a knock late on in the New Year's Day draw at Nottingham Forest.
If Hammill fails to recover in time Jim O'Brien is likely to start.
O'Connor, who has signed a permanent deal at Oakwell, is now eligible to play following the expiry of his contract at Birmingham.
Midfielder Diego Arismendi and defender Matt Hill returned to the side in place of O'Brien and Hugo Colace on Saturday and could retain their places following one of Barnsley's best away displays of the season.
Defenders Jay McEveley and Luke Potter remain sidelined with knee injuries.
Coventry boss Aidy Boothroyd will be without suspended striker Marlon King for the game.
The experienced 30-year-old was dismissed after an hour of Saturday's 1-1 draw with Ipswich for a two-footed lunge on Darren O'Dea and will begin a three-match ban.
Winger Gary McSheffrey returns from suspension and is likely to replace King in the starting XI with Freddy Eastwood given a rare chance up front following his goal which earned the Sky Blues a point.
Midfielder Aron Gunnarsson is also available after a three-match ban.
Defender Ben Turner, who recently agreed a new three-and-a-half year contract at the Ricoh, is still sidelined with a knee injury.
