The duo, who missed City's final pre-season friendly, started on the bench as Tisdale's men ran out 2-1 winners against Bristol Rovers on Saturday.
And Doherty, who made 15 appearances in his three years with QPR, and Gow, who impressed as a second-half replacement, will hope to get the nod from the start against Harry Redknapp's men.
Aaron Dawson will hope to be given a chance at right-back having been a regular in that position during pre-season while Jamie Reid and Jake Gosling are both options for the Football League's longest-serving manager.
