The midfielder has completed his suspension for his sending-off at Southampton three weeks ago.
Winger Ashley Vincent could also be added to the travelling party if he shakes off the ankle injury which has sidelined him for the last two matches.
But the game comes too soon for defenders Pat Baldwin (leg), Lee Beevers (shoulder) and Paul Reid (knee).
Kevin Lisbie will expect to feature against his former club, while fellow striker Steven Gillespie is pushing for a first start of the season after another substitute appearance at Tranmere on Saturday.
Gillespie is finally over his hamstring problems and is continuing to build up his match fitness.
