Defender Darren Purse is available again after serving a one-match ban but may only make the bench, with replacement Darren Ward having helped the Lions keep two clean sheets in a row.
Striker Neil Harris is likely to feature in the squad after recovering from his hip injury, but Kevin Lisbie and Steve Morison are expected to keep their places up front. And the influential Hameur Bouazza is also in line for a place on the bench after missing the last three games with a knee injury.
Kenny Jackett's side have kept their play-off hopes alive by recording impressive victories against QPR and Burnley. The Lions lost 2-1 to Cardiff this season when the sides met back in September.
