Blackburn's Tom Cairney may be fit to face Bolton on Saturday after a scan showed no serious damage to his ankle.
The 23-year-old was hurt in Saturday's 1-0 win at Reading and left the Madejski Stadium in a protective boot, but he has an outside chance of featuring against Wanderers.
He has played 33 times for Blackburn, scoring three goals.
Meanwhile, left-back Tommy Spurr hopes the win against the Royals will prove to be the catalyst for a promotion push.
It put them ninth in the table, four points behind sixth-placed Reading.
Spurr, who has started every league game for Rovers this term, told BBC Radio Lancashire: "If they'd have beaten us, they would have been 10 points in front of us. We'd have still had a game in hand but that would have been a lot for us to do.
"It was a must-win game - I saw it as that myself - and it's a massive positive to go there and win 1-0."
