Murphy was rested for the midweek Capital One Cup defeat at Newcastle, but could replace teenager Alex Mowatt, while striker Luke Varney will also be hoping to return.
Lee Peltier was sidelined on Wednesday night due to a groin injury and remains doubtful, while fellow defender Sam Byram played the full 90 minutes again following his return from a long-term hip injury and could be rested.
Manager Brian McDermott, who has no new injury or suspension worries, has the option of recalling midfielder Paul Green, plus strikers Noel Hunt and El-Hadji Diouf to his starting XI.
