Bristol City skipper Louis Carey could return to the squad for the home clash with Coventry.
Manager Keith Millen promised to make changes following the midweek home defeat to Watford and Carey might be recalled after coming came through a reserve team run-out unscathed this week.
The defender has made just one substitute appearance so far this season due to a heel injury.
Millen could also hand Danny Rose, on loan from Tottenham, his first start for City.
Rose was a half-time replacement on Tuesday night and gives Millen an alternative option in midfield.
Millen has no new injury or suspension problems but long-term absentees Nicky Maynard and Sam Vokes (hamstring) are still out as the Robins chase their first home league win of the season.
Coventry look set to travel without the services of potential new signing Marlon King.
King was on Friday morning meant to put the finishing touches to what had become a drawn-out switch to the midlands club but, with still nothing confirmed and an FA deadline for registering new signings appearing to have passed, his involvement at Ashton Gate appears unlikely.
The latest hold up, should a deal definitely not go through in time, will only further frustrate Aidy Boothroyd. However, the Sky Blues boss will be happy to welcome back Gary McSheffrey after he missed Tuesday`s 2-1 defeat at Swansea with a hamstring niggle.
Fellow wide man Danny Ward was forced off with a calf injury at the Liberty Stadium but his withdrawal was more of a precaution and the youngster will be assessed as late as possible.
Striker Freddy Eastwood remains in the treatment room with his knee problem and misses out but Boothroyd opted to remain coy regarding the availability of trio David Bell, Michael McIndoe (both hamstring) and James McPake (shin).
