Burnley will be without suspended defender Leon Cort for their Carling Cup clash at Aston Villa.
Cort was sent off for two yellow card offences in Saturday's 4-0 home defeat to Reading and sits out with a one-game ban.
But Clarke Carlisle makes a timely return following his three-match ban and is expected to step straight in for Cort.
Manager Brian Laws has no new injury worries but hinted at changes following the disappointing display against Reading.
Laws said: "If anyone drops out of this side there is another one knocking on the door and I might have six or seven players knocking on my door now. We'll wait and see."
The Clarets upset local rivals Bolton in the previous round thanks to Wade Elliott's solitary goal.
