Tony Craig is the latest addition to the casualty list after suffering a recurrence of his back injury which kept him out of Tuesday night’s Carling Cup defeat at West Ham.
Fellow defenders Zak Whitbread (hip), Danny Senda (Achilles), Pat O’Connor (cruciate) and Paul Robinson (metatarsal) are still on the sidelines, although the latter is close to returning to training.
In addition, midfielders Lewis Grabban (thigh) and Nadjim Abdou (groin) and striker Steve Morison (thigh) are expected to miss out again.
Manager Kenny Jackett is so short of personnel he was only able to name four substitutes at Upton Park.
Versatile George Friend will be added to the squad having missed out in midweek due to his loan deal from Wolves.
