Defender Taylor and midfielder Stephens missed Saturday's thrilling 3-2 comeback win over Bolton due to illness.

Striker Ricardo Fuller popped his shoulder out during the match but boss Chris Powell expects him to be fine.

Mark Gower came on as a substitute to make his debut following his recent loan switch from Swansea so he is pushing for a start.

Fellow midfielder Andy Hughes made his first start since November 2011 after a long-term Achilles problem, so he could make way.

Defender Leon Cort remains a doubt with a knee injury and midfielder Danny Hollands is still on the sidelines with a fractured metatarsal.
