Norwich City midfielder Nathan Redmond is the only fresh injury concern ahead of Rotherham's Championship league visit.
Canaries' boss Neil Adams confirmed at Colney on Thursday the England Under-21 starlet requires treatment for a 'tight hamstring' but Adams is hopeful the 20-year-old can return to training on Friday.
Kyle Lafferty is also back in contention after overcoming the illness that sidelined him for the midweek 1-0 league defeat to Charlton.
'Nathan Redmond has a tight hamstring but we are hoping he will be fine,' said Adams. 'He came in the day after the game and had a bit of treatment the last two days. We hope he can train Friday but if not he will certainly be ready by Saturday. He is the only one who has reported in.
'Kyle trained today, fine, no problem. It was as we thought in terms of the illness he had. It was one of those 48 hour things and he deserved credit because he could have been on the bench on Tuesday. I had to have a chat with him to see what we did because he had been sick the previous night, he had one piece of toast on the day of the game and that is not ideal for the demands of a match. He said honestly he could give me half an hour so then it was my call. We might have needed him but the way your luck goes we might have had to throw him in after minutes and then take him off again. We decided not to.'
Adams also revealed longer term injury absentees Ryan Bennett and Mark Bunn could be back in contention towards the end of the upcoming international break after both undergoing early season ankle surgery.
'Ryan and Mark are still a couple of weeks off but they are out of the (protective) boots, which is good, and making progress,' he said. 'They won't be playing any immediate part. We have the international break after this weekend and so I guess you would be looking for them to being a lot closer after that.'
