Sheffield Wednesday will be boosted by the return to contention of Reda Johnson, while Tommy Miller is also expected to be available for the clash at Walsall.
Central defender Johnson missed out last week due to a groin injury, but will be available and midfielder Miller, who sustained an ankle injury in Saturday's home win over Hartlepool, has also proved his fitness.
Johnson's return is a boost for manager Gary Megson, who will be without fellow centre-half Mark Beevers for the rest of the season due to a fractured cheekbone.
Giles Coke and Darren Potter are both pushing for recalls to the starting line-up, while Megson must decide whether to start with Neil Mellor up front alongside Gary Madine or opt for Clinton Morrison, who started last week on the substitutes' bench.
Megson has no new injury or suspension problems as the Owls chase their first away league win in four attempts.
