Wood has recovered from a hamstring problem while summer signing Taylor-Fletcher has also resumed training following a minor injury.

"They are both back in training and we will look at how they progress over the next couple of days," said Pearson. "It will be good to have our attacking options boosted by their return."

Republic of Ireland defender Sean St Ledger is nearing fitness after a knee injury while Kasper Schmeichel (Denmark), Wes Morgan (Jamaica), Andy King (Wales) and Marcin Wasilewski (Poland) have returned unscathed from international duty.
