Defender Inigo Calderon, midfielder Dale Stephens and top scorer Leonardo Ulloa were all ruled out of Tuesday night's 1-0 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday through illness, meaning boss Oscar Garcia could name only six substitutes.

Andrea Orlandi is still struggling with a thigh injury while fellow midfielder Andrew Crofts is sidelined for the season with cruciate damage.

Will Hoskins has suffered a slight setback in his comeback from knee surgery and Craig Mackail-Smith is building up his fitness after a year out with an Achilles problem.
