Jewell could well be without first-choice goalkeeper Stephen Bywater and Stephen Pearson against Blackburn with shoulder injuries, while Robert Earnshaw picked up a calf strain against Liverpool which reduced him to a passenger for the last 20 minutes. Claude Davis, Matt Oakley, Andy Todd and David Jones are also probably missing.
Jewell said: "The injuries have piled up. Pearson, Bywater, Earnshaw - we really are stretched to the limits. I wish it was January already, we need to bring people in."
