Sheffield Wednesday pair Gary Madine and Giles Coke are injury doubts for the visit of Notts County.
Striker Madine faces a late fitness test after being forced off with a calf injury in the midweek win at Oldham, while midfielder Coke missed out on Tuesday night due to a hamstring strain.
Clinton Morrison replaced Madine and could continue should the former Carlisle forward fail to make it, but manager Gary Megson also has the option of either Neil Mellor or Paul Heffernan, both unused substitutes in midweek.
If he proves his fitness, Coke may have to settle for a place on the substitutes’ bench after fellow midfielder Chris Sedgwick scored twice at Oldham.
Winger Jermaine Johnson is in contention again following his month-long lay-off due to illness.
The Owls, eight points above the relegation zone, last won at home in the league on December 11 against Bristol Rovers.
Notts County manager Paul Ince is sweating on the fitness of Lee Hughes ahead of the trip to Sheffield Wednesday.
The 12-goal striker has been occupying the sidelines with a hip injury and will have to pass a late fitness test if he is to be included in the squad.
Fellow striker Karl Hawley is also a doubt while defender Krystian Pearce missed the midweek defeat to Peterborough after suffering a head injury in training and is also struggling to be fit.
Stephen Darby returned to the starting line-up against Posh a week earlier than planned following an ankle injury and, if he feels no recurrence of the problem, is set to retain his place at right-back.
Fellow defender Graeme Lee made his first start for six months against Darren Ferguson’s side on Tuesday and looks likely to make his 50th appearance for County.
