The Mali striker has been missing since the win against Everton on New Year's Day with first a grade one hamstring tear and now an aductor muscle strain he picked up on Friday last week.
Head Coach Martin reported this afternoon: "Fredi is still injured and I don't think he can make it for Saturday."
Meanwhile, Thimothee Atouba also looks set to miss another game with the knee injury that has kept him out since Boxing Day. "He is still not 100 per cent," added Martin.
