Mauricio Taricco, Dean Richards, Gus Poyet and Darren Anderton all return while Jon Blondel and Mbulelo Mabizela both retain their places in the squad.
Christian Ziege, who so disappointingly suffered a knee injury on his comeback on Wednesday, joins Jamie Redknapp (knee), Simon Davies (thigh/hip) and Fredi Kanoute (ankle) on the missing list.
There was good news on Fredi. "He's making good progress," said caretaker boss David Pleat, who also reported that Simon has started to step up his training.
As for Jamie's progress, David added: "He's keeping his spirits up around the training ground but he's still having treatment. We need to get him right."
