The winger was a late omission from the squad to face West Brom at the weekend with a minor knock and remains a doubt.
He joins defenders James Perch (shin), Julian Bennett (knee) and Kelvin Wilson (ankle) in the treatment room, while centre-half Luke Chambers completes a three-match suspension for his red card on the opening day of the season.
Boss Billy Davies is almost certain to ask midfielder Chris Cohen to line-up at left-back again but he may be tempted to make changes in attack.
Dele Adebola and Joe Garner started against West Brom but Robert Earnshaw, Dexter Blackstock and David McGoldrick offer the Scot other options.
Earnshaw in particular will be keen to atone for his penalty miss against the Baggies.
