Elliott Ward faces an extended spell on the sidelines after sustaining a further injury.
The central defender, who spent a season loan loan with tomorrow night's opponents Nottingham Forest, has been out of action since the opening day of the season when he picked up an ankle injury against Norwich City.
However having just returned to training with the first team last week, the 31-year-old suffered a fractured ankle that could keep him out for up to 12 weeks.
"Elliott Ward came back to training last week but he has fractured his ankle," confirmed Owen Coyle this Thursday lunchtime.
"It is a real bad bit of luck for the big lad, that will be ten to twelve weeks out for him because it the fracture will probably need an operation."
Tickets for Tuesday night's match will be on sale up to the 7.45pm kick-off priced from £18 Adults, £12 Seniors/18-21 year-olds and £7 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
