Wales senior internationals Ashley Williams and David Cotterill missed the encounter but will return against North End, as will David Cornell, Jazz Richards, Daniel Alfei, Neil Taylor and Shaun MacDonald who were away on duty with Wales Under-21s.
Right-back Angel Rangel is also likely to return having missed the first two games of the season with a thigh injury aggravated in the warm-up against Hull on the opening weekend.
Joe Allen made his return against the Bees after completing his recovery from a shoulder operation and should be involved again this weekend.
