Izale McLeod serves the final game of his three-match ban. Lanre Oyebanjo (calf) is doubtful and Josh Simpson (hamstring) is definitely out. Gwion Edwards hopes to return after recovering from a hernia operation and is back in training.
Leyton Orient have a host of injury worries with nine players out although midfielder Dean Cox, who started last Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Barnsley on the bench, is expected to have recovered from an ankle knock to be in contention for a start.
VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAMP
John Gregory: "There has to be a big collective improvement on last Saturday which was so disappointing. It's a big game considering the league positions of both teams and we have to go there and get something, which I feel we are capable of doing. We've got a good record against them - let's hope it continues."
Fabio Liverani (Leyton Orient manager, pictured): "Last week at Barnsley (2-0 defeat) was a step back for us. We have a lot of injury problems at the moment. We need those players back and to strengthen in January, but it is important to get a result in the next two games. Friday is like a Champions League final for us."
