Captain Welsh travelled to Oldham on Saturday with the squad but was left out altogether following his recent knee problem. Welsh trained on Thursday and Friday, though, and could slot into the midfield following a four-game absence.
Central defender Wright also missed out after picking up a knock at the end of last week yet will be at Simon Grayson's disposal this time around.
That will give Grayson a full compliment of options, although utility-man Jack King has a constant foot problem which may struggle to take the strain of two games in the space of four days.
