Striker Ade missed last week's 2-2 draw at Wigan with a knee complaint while midfielder Mousa departed early from the action at the DW Stadium with a muscle injury.

"Ade is back in training, so back in contention for the game," said Andre after training on Thursday.

"We have to see Mousa in training tomorrow and we can assess his chances better then. He’s made good progress and run at different intensities, so hopefully we can have him back."

Andre also revealed that Jake Livermore missed out at Wigan because of a small muscle tear.

Sandro, William Gallas and Younes Kaboul remain sidelined.
