Blackpool goalkeeper Matt Gilks will remain on the sidelines when Ian Holloway's men make the short trip along the Lancashire coast.
A groin problem ruled Gilks out of the Seasiders' festive fixtures, with Mark Howard deputising in the previous three matches, and the 25-year-old former Aberdeen keeper is set to continue.
Captain Barry Ferguson will serve the second game of a three-match ban for a straight red card in the New Year's Eve defeat at Birmingham.
Holloway has no new injury worries following Monday's impressive 3-0 triumph over Middlesbrough, but is expected to make changes, with experienced forward duo Kevin Phillips and Gary Taylor-Fletcher in line for recalls.
On-loan Liverpool defender Danny Wilson will make his Blackpool debut if selected.
Keith Southern remains out, the midfielder having undergone surgery to remove a testicular tumour.
