Manager Alan Irvine is unlikely to make any changes to his side when Sheffield Wednesday host Ipswich.
The Owls saw their run of four league games without defeat at Hillsborough ended by Doncaster in midweek and Irvine will be looking for a quick return to winning ways as his side are just a point clear of the relegation zone.
Tommy Miller is set to play for the reserves against Shrewsbury next week as he steps up his recovery from a hamstring problem.
The midfielder will be assessed after that clash but it is thought that he is around two weeks away from a return to first-team action.
Defender Lewis Buxton and midfielder Jermaine Johnson (both hamstring) remain on the sidelines.
David Wright is hoping to win a recall to the Ipswich side.
On-loan Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback has filled in at left-back for the last two games but he was exposed during the second half of the 3-1 defeat at Peterborough in midweek and boss Roy Keane may revert to the more orthodox figure of Wright at Hillsborough.
Further forward, Daryl Murphy will start after scoring in each of his three appearances for the club but fellow Sunderland loanee David Healy may be dropped after a fruitless evening at London Road.
Pablo Counago is favourite to partner Murphy at the weekend as Keane`s side face a third of four consecutive away games.
Ipswich slid into the bottom three with Reading`s win at Crystal Palace on Wednesday night and need a positive result against Irvine`s side.
Keane`s only injury concerns are goalkeeper Richard Wright, who is close to a return from his knee injury, and winger Luciano Civelli, who will not be back until September from his.
