The midfielder limped off shortly after half-time in Thursday night's epic Johnstone's Paint Trophy victory over Preston having been on the end of a tough tackle.

Manager Mark Robins will now monitor the on-loan Derby man, with Conor Thomas on standby to replace him at Brunton Park.

Otherwise, Robins is likely to have close to a fully-fit squad for the clash.

John Fleck came in for Franck Moussa against North End in what was the only change from last weekend's FA Cup defeat at Tottenham, with Moussa in contention to regain his starting spot having been dropped to the bench.

Long-term absentees David Bell (toe) and Callum Ball (foot) could find themselves in the matchday 18 as they move closer to full fitness.
