Blackburn manager Michael Appleton has reduced options in central midfielder for the npower Championship clash with Leeds.
Recent signing Lee Williamson sustained an ankle injury during Tuesday night's 2-0 defeat to Hull and is facing the prospect of around six weeks on the sidelines.
Dickson Etuhu returned from a lengthy knee injury absence in Monday's reserve game against Sunderland but suffered a setback and could be out for another month depending on the results of a scan.
Club stalwart David Dunn (calf) remains out having not played since October.
Right-back Adam Henley came through his outing for the second string following a hamstring problem and may come into Appleton's plans, although forward Leon Best (knee) is not yet ready for first-team action despite coming through 67 minutes on his return to action.
Leeds boss Neil Warnock will check on a couple of players before deciding on his line-up.
The Whites won their first game in four attempts on Wednesday night with a 2-0 win over Blackpool, but the manager will assess his squad for signs of tiredness ahead of the trip to 11th-placed Rovers.
He said: ``We had some tired legs out there (against Blackpool). We'll see how one or two are before we travel, but it's a really tough choice as a manager.''
Michael Tonge made his first start since January in midweek, alongside David Norris and Paul Green in midfield, and the trio are expected to continue after impressing Warnock.
``Michael hasn't played a great deal of football lately but he gives us something special in the middle. Same with Norris and Green,'' he added.
Long-term absentees Leigh Bromby and Adam Drury remain sidelined, while Habib Habibou still awaits his full debut.
