The former Newcastle and QPR defender joined on a season-long loan deal from Crystal Palace on transfer deadline day.
But the Reds will be without striker Marcus Pedersen, who gashed his foot while playing for Norway in their midweek World Cup qualifying defeat to Switzerland, so Chris Dagnall is expected to return to the starting line-up alongside Craig Davies.
Martin Cranie (knee) could return to contention after being sidelined since early August, but fellow defender Lewin Nyatanga is not fully match fit following a hamstring injury. Goalkeeper Luke Steele is pushing for a recall.
