Town's leading goalscorer missed the Boxing Day draw against Derby after taking a knock to his knee, while defender Antony Gerrard is another injury concern for boss Mark Robins.
Gerrard sustained a groin injury against Derby and could be replaced in the starting line-up by Joel Lynch, but Jonathan Hogg returned to the side following a hip injury and is expected to resume in midfield.
Duane Holmes is pushing for a starting berth after two impressive substitute appearances, but skipper Peter Clarke (knee) remains a long-term absentee.
