Sheffield United will be looking to build on their 1-0 success over Peterborough when they travel to Bristol City on Saturday.
However, such is their bad luck this season, the Blades' match-winner against Posh, Henri Camara, will miss the clash with hamstring problems.
The victory was United's first in nine games and manager Kevin Blackwell will be hoping the result can kick-start their play-off push with the club now six points off a top-six place.
Meanwhile, the Robins will be looking to respond from the heavy 4-1 defeat at promotion chasers West Brom last week - the club's first loss in eight games.
Jamie McAllister is set to be fit for the match having suffered a shin injury against the Baggies but is expected to play against the Blades.
Fellow defender Bradley Orr is out, though, having failed to shake off the Achilles injury that has kept him sidelined for a month so Cole Skuse will continue at right-back.
Scotland striker David Clarkson will be hopeful of forcing his way into the side after the West Brom loss, while manager Gary Johnson's son Lee will also be aiming for a starting berth.
City boast a 19-game unbeaten home league run going into the game, with their last defeat at Ashton Gate coming against Burnley on 20th December last year.
United will be without Henri Camara (hamstring) but are boosted by new loan pair Carl Ikeme and Toni Kallio.
Wolves goalkeeper Ikeme and Fulham centre-half Kallio both arrived on one-month loan deals in time to be included in Blackwell's squad.
The Blades will be without Derek Geary and Gary Naysmith, who have both encountered slight niggles on their way back from long-term knee injuries, while Lee Williamson and Ched Evans face late tests as they have both been unwell.
But Darius Henderson is available again after his one-game ban and both Nick Montgomery (knee) and Richard Cresswell (ribs) could also return.
