Both Nathan Ferguson and Sam Johnstone are still out with injuries, while on-loan Arsenal midfielder Sambi Lokonga is unavailable for selection against his parent club. Vicente Guaita is a doubt after sustaining a hamstring injury in training and subsequently missing the recent clash with Brighton, with young Joe Whitworth ready to stand in the breach. Will Hughes and James McArthur both face late assessments before Sunday to gauge any possible involvement in north London.
