The on-loan QPR striker is struggling with a stomach injury and missed Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Leeds.
Youngsters John Marquis and Benik Afobe started up front at Elland Road but were replaced by the more experienced Andy Keogh and Nathan Tyson, fit again after an ankle injury, during the second half.
James Henry was carried off on a stretcher after a hefty challenge but was able to come back on after treatment and should be available.
Fellow winger Chris Taylor was back on the bench after a knee injury and should be in the squad again, while midfielder Liam Trotter will be hoping for a recall after being dropped.
