Steffen Freund and Teddy Sheringham miss out on a quick chance of revenge against Ipswich Town on Saturday.
Midfielder Steffen suffered a knee ligament injury against Chelsea in midweek and skipper Teddy serves the second of his three-match ban after his red card in the 2-1 defeat against Town last month.
Better news sees the return of Dean Richards after being cup-tied at Stamford Bridge and fit-again Steffen Iversen, who scored on his comeback at Dover on Thursday night after suffering a slight abductor strain.
Goran Bunjevcevic played 45 minutes for the reserves on Monday night but is not expected to feature yet while Stephen Clemence (groin), Stephen Carr (knee), Gary Doherty (broken leg) and Chris Armstrong (hernia) are all on the road to recovery.
Town boss George Burley has a full squad to chose from with Mark Venus, Matt Holland, and Thomas Gaardsoe back in full training.
Striker Marcus Stewart scored on his comeback after a fractured cheekbone in the FA Cup win at Dagenham last weekend and is expected to start.
The only possible change may come in goal where Matteo Sereni is tipped to return at the expense of Andy Marshall.
