Bridcutt starts a two-match ban after he was booked for the 10th time this season during Tuesday night's 2-0 win at leaders Cardiff.
But fellow midfielder Dean Hammond is expected to be fit despite limping off against the Bluebirds with a knee injury.
Boss Gus Poyet is also set to welcome back three players who missed the midweek victory.
Ashley Barnes returns from a three-match ban, fellow striker Craig Mackail-Smith is expected to shake off a knee niggle and skipper Gordon Greer should be back in defence after a hamstring injury.
Midfielder Andrew Crofts (hamstring) remains a doubt while forward Will Hoskins (knee) is still out.
