The midfielder has recovered from a head injury suffered following a collision with Rotherham's Jason Taylor during last weekend's 2-1 victory that saw him stretchered from the field after lengthy on-pitch treatment.
The Brighton loanee has trained as normal this week and is expected to keep his place in midfield, though he will be assessed ahead of kick-off as a precaution.
Chris Whelpdale is a doubt due to a groin strain and will face a fitness test ahead of the game, but Connor Essam is expected to be available after recovering from a thigh injury and should return to the bench.
Tom Flanagan is sidelined until the new year with a fractured metatarsal, by which time his loan deal from MK Dons will have ended.
