The fiery midfielder collected his fifth booking of the season in Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Burnley and serves a one-match ban.

With Tottenham loanee Tom Carroll also absent due to an ankle injury, Alejandro Faurlin and Jermaine Jenas will be pushing for recalls in midfield.

Andy Johnson is fit after a hamstring problem and could be added to the squad but fellow striker Bobby Zamora (knee) and defender Nedum Onouha (hamstring) are still on the sidelines.
