Defenders Andrew Halliday (broken nose) and Jonathan Woodgate (calf) returned to training earlier this week and will be assessed ahead of kick-off.

Fellow defenders Andre Bikey and Justin Hoyte have also resumed training following hamstring and hip problems respectively and could come into consideration.

Striker Marvin Emnes is also available after a hamstring injury while midfielder Josh McEachran could feature after recovering from an ankle knock sustained against Watford.

Curtis Main played in an Under-21 match earlier this week after recovering from a knee operation but is likely to miss out.

Veteran Julio Arca is also two to three weeks away following a toe operation and Muzzy Carayol (knee) is also a couple of weeks away from a return.
