The Scotland defender has been out since September after tearing his hamstring while on international duty but Alan Irvine is hoping to have him available for selection at Hillsborough.
He said: "He's had a couple of training sessions but he is not quite there yet, he'll train again on Monday so we will assess him at that point.
"He may well be ready for Tuesday but we don't want to bring him back too early, we will bring him back when he is ready."
Paul Parry could start after coming on as a substitute at QPR at the weekend, playing 25 minutes as he makes his way back from a hamstring injury.
Midfielder Barry Nicholson remains out with a broken leg but Irvine should have no other major concerns.
