The forward is still regaining full fitness following groin surgery, while striker Patrick Bamford and right-back Jon Otsemobor are also injury concerns.

Bamford is being monitored after suffering an ankle injury during the club's pre-season trip to Ireland. The 21-year-old has made three appearances, two from the bench, since limping off against St. James' Gate last month but he will be closely watched by manager Karl Robinson and the medical team over the next 48 hours.

Otsemobor has struggled with a knee injury throughout pre-season, however the defender did make it through the friendly against a Tottenham XI this week.
