The midfielder, who has been sidelined with a knee injury since December, was left out of the squad for the defeat against West Ham two weeks ago but has since played for the reserves and in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Doncaster this week.
Geovanni (knee) is fit but Anthony Gardner is facing six weeks on the sidelines with an ankle problem while Stephen Hunt and Dean Marney are doubts.
Craig Fagan will definitely miss the clash following his red card against the Hammers.
Phil Brown: "We can put down a marker with 11 games to go. Hopefully for us it'll be a positive one."
