Owen Coyle may miss the services of Marcos Alonso, who is believed to still be recovering from a foot injury. Dedryck Boyata is a doubt after sustaining an ankle injury against Sunderland, while Sean Davis is yet to make a return after a protracted knee injury.
Stuart Holden fell prey to a serious knee injury against Manchester United at Old Trafford, and is not expected to return until next March. Chung-Yong Lee and Tyrone Mears are also sidelined, as both players recover from a broken leg.
Meanwhile, Sam Ricketts suffered an Achilles problem that needed surgery. He has made progress in his recovery, but is expected to be unavailable for this fixture.
