Derby striker Jack Marriott could make his return to action in Wednesday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Wigan at Pride Park.
Marriott, who has missed the last three games due to a muscle injury, has been back in training and will be assessed.
Tom Huddlestone (hamstring), Richard Keogh (knee) and Ikechi Anya (calf) remain sidelined.
Craig Forsyth and George Evans continue to build up their match fitness with the under-23s after spells out.
Wigan captain Sam Morsy is available again after missing Saturday’s 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest due to a one-match suspension for five yellow cards this season.
The Latics will be without defender Nathan Byrne, who serves his own one-game ban after picking up his fifth booking of the campaign in the victory against Forest.
Boss Paul Cook has confirmed Chelsea loanee Dujon Sterling will start at right-back in Byrne’s absence.
Wigan have won three of their last five games, with all of those victories coming at the DW Stadium.
