The 12-goal striker missed the midweek defeat at Bournemouth after aggravating a knee problem and if he misses out Danny Ward is expected to continue alongside Nahki Wells as Martin Paterson (thigh) is still not ready to return.
Winger Adam Hammill (knee) is another big doubt, but skipper Peter Clarke (knee), sidelined since early November, is pushing for a return to action after making the bench on Tuesday night.
Recent signing Joe Lolley is hoping to make his debut for the club, but midfielder Jonathan Hogg (hip) is doubtful and defender Joel Lynch (groin) is definitely out.
