Veteran striker Lee Hughes comes back into the reckoning for Notts County.
Hughes has served a three-match suspension following his red card in the win at Rochdale at the end of last month.
The 35-year-old will battle it out with Ben Burgess for the right to partner Jonathan Forte, who has scored five goals in as many matches under new boss Keith Curle.
Lloyd Sam is expected to make his debut after joining Notts on loan from Leeds this week. Curle must decide whether to start the winger or introduce him from the bench.
Defenders Stephen Hunt and Jude Stirling will remain on the sidelines with ankle and thigh problems respectively.
Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones is hoping to add defender Reda Johnson to his squad.
Johnson, who has missed the last three matches, was close to returning last week following a hamstring injury, but was not risked and may have to settle for a place on the substitutes' bench due to the form of current full-backs Lewis Buxton and Julian Bennett.
Jones is unlikely to make too many, if any, changes to his side after the Owls followed up their 4-1 win over Bury in his first game in charge with a 3-0 success over Bournemouth last week.
Michail Antonio scored his third goal in two games against the Cherries following his recent arrival on loan from Reading and will continue, with fellow winger Mike Jones on the opposite flank.
Ryan Lowe is expected to continue his partnership up front alongside Gary Madine, while Rob Jones and Danny Batth should resume in central defence.
The Owls are two points behind second-placed Sheffield United in the table following three wins and a draw in their last four matches.
