The winger missed Saturday’s defeat by Notts County due to a dead leg and Sampson has given him a 50/50 chance of playing at Don Valley Stadium.
Goalkeeper Chris Dunn, who has not featured since mid-February due to a knee problem, was back on the bench at the weekend and will battle with Jason Steele for a starting role.
Star striker Adebayo Akinfenwa is still struggling with an ankle problem, so Steve Guinan and Billy McKay are likely to start in attack again.
Kevin Thornton came off the bench to make a successful return from a knee problem against the Magpies and will be pushing for a start.
But Andy Holt (knee) and Stephen O’Flynn (groin) remain sidelined.
