Peterborough defender Craig Morgan will return as Jim Gannon takes charge of his first game as manager against QPR.
The Wales international is available after a three-match suspension and will return to the starting line-up as Posh look for a first win since December 19.
Left-back Tom Williams made his first start since October in the 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace last Saturday but is a doubt after picking up a knock so Scott Griffiths could return.
Fellow defender Gabriel Zakuani remains a doubt with a groin injury while on-loan Charlton striker Izale Mcleod will be back in the squad.
Mcleod was left out of the 16 at Selhurst Park after a clash with then-manager Mark Cooper but after the latter was dismissed on Monday the striker will be involved.
Midfielder Paul Coutts will not feature after he joined former boss Darren Ferguson at Preston on deadline day.
Tamas Priskin and Marcus Bent are set to form an all-new strike-force when QPR travel north.
Hungary international Priskin has joined on loan from Ipswich and fellow frontman Bent was snapped up from Birmingham.
Manager Mick Harford is also considering handing a start to Lee Cook as he attempts to halt Rangers' slide down the table.
Winger Cook got a 15-minute run-out as a substitute during last week's 1-0 defeat by Scunthorpe, his first appearance of the season following a summer operation to solve his knee problems.
Midfield duo Martin Rowlands and Gavin Mahon are long-term absentees with knee injuries but Harford has an otherwise full-strength squad.
Rangers have slipped to 14th after a run of just one win in 11 games.
