The Dutch winger limped out of training on Thursday with a slight hamstring problem and his fitness will be monitored ahead of the game.
Striker Craig Beattie is expected to return to the starting line-up for the first time since December 12 after recovering from illness and a knee injury.
Spaniard Gorka Pintado is the man likely to make way for Beattie, having failed to score for Paulo Sousa’s side this season.
Sousa is sure to make further changes to the side that lost at Leicester in the FA Cup last time out, with Angel Rangel, Leon Britton, Andrea Orlandi and Fede Bessone set to return.
Full-back Marcos Painter will not be included in the squad after joining Brighton on loan this week.
