A stomach complaint kept Bobby out of Wednesday's 3-0 success at Highfield Road but his returns means caretaker boss David Pleat has a full compliment of four strikers to select from.
Jamie Redknapp (knee), Ledley King (hamstring), Simon Davies (groin) and Kazu Toda (calf) are on the treatment table while Christian Ziege, back from a thigh problem, is not yet ready for the Premiership - he continued his comeback in a private friendly against Leyton Orient earlier this week.
David reported this afternoon: "Jamie took a whack on the knee and that caused some inflammation. We'll be sensible with him, he's had injuries before but there is no panic situation.
"Ledley King has done a little jogging this morning. How long he'll take to be in the frame I don't know, but that will give us an important option. The same with Simon.
"Christian's back and we have to hope for his sake that there is no reaction to that injury.
"Kazu is getting fit again and that will be good for us as well."
