Defenders Rob Jones (sickness) and David Mirfin (lower leg) and midfielder Martyn Woolford (knee) all missed the 4-2 Carling Cup victory over Sheffield Wednesday in midweek.

However, they have since returned to training and will be available to face the Eagles.

Winger Garry Thompson has been ruled out for up to two months due to a groin injury.

In another setback, defender Jim McNulty faces three weeks on the sidelines after he hobbled off with an ankle injury during last Saturday's defeat at QPR.
