Birmingham v Brighton
BIRMINGHAM pair Chris Wood and Morgaro Gomis are pushing for a recall after being rested in midweek, although Nikola Zigic could keep his place having scored. Wade Elliott and Pablo Ibanez (concussion) are doubts. On-loan Billy Paynter is set for his BRIGHTON bow, Vicente (thigh) could return but Gary Dicker is set for a long absence with a broken leg.
Burnley v Blackpool
Junior Stanislas is back in contention for BURNLEY having been cup-tied at Cardiff while Ross Wallace and Marvin Bartley hopd to be reinstated after being named on the bench for that one. BLACKPOOL have few injury concerns, Lomana LuaLua isn’t match fit and should again be on the bench but boss Ian Holloway could promote Keith Southern to the first eleven.
Crystal Palace v Reading
PALACE boss Dougie Freedman rested seven players for the Carling Cup win over Southampton on Tuesday and must decide who to recall but Darren Ambrose suffered a knock and will be assessed. READING welcome back Jay Tabb who has missed the last couple with concussion and that means the Royals head to Selhurst Park with a clean bill of health.
Derby v Portsmouth
Defensive duo Jason Shackell (hip) and Mark O’Brien (knock) have missed training this week but are expected to be fit for DERBY, who will check on the fitness of Russell Anderson (hamstring).

DONCASTER midfielder Martin Woods (hip) is closing in on a return but Chris Brown is not quite ready, Rachid Bouhenna (ankle) is out and John Oster needs surgery to cure a neck problem. COVENTRY are confident that Carl Baker (ankle) and Gary McSheffrey (back) will be ready but Richard Wood has a knock and will be monitored and Gael Bigirimana is banned.
Millwall v Ipswich
Josh McQuoid (hernia) and Therry Racon (ankle) could return to the MILLWALL squad but Lions boss Kenny Jackett is unlikely to make changes to his starting line-up after the win at Leicester. Aaron Cresswell is suspended for IPSWICH but Ibrahima Sonko should be back from a thigh injury, Damien Delaney (foot) hopes to be fit and Michael Chopra is set to start.
Nottingham Forest v Hull
Greg Cunningham is in line for his FOREST debut after joining on-loan from Manchester City but Guy Moussi is suspended and Jonathan Greening could fill the void.

PETERBOROUGH are without the suspended Lee Tomlin but Craig Alcock should be fit despite coming off at half-time last week against Leeds.

WEST HAM add Matt Taylor (calf) and Henri Lansbury (knee) to a lengthy injury list that already includes Carlton Cole, Robert Green (both knee), James Tomkins (groin), Guy Demel (hamstring) and Gary O’Neil (ankle). LEICESTER skipper Matt Mills serves the final game of a ban but Paul Gallagher is back in contention after recovering from an ankle problem.
Leeds v Cardiff (Sun)
Paul Rachubka will continue to deputise for Andy Lonergan (finger) in goal for LEEDS, who will check on the fitness of Robert Snodgrass but the Whites otherwise have no new concerns. CARDIFF defender Anthony Gerrard is banned after racking up five bookings, Kenny Miller is rated 50-50 after suffering a head injury. Joe Mason is on standby to step in.
