Boss Tony Mowbray says Bradley Dack will be assessed over the weekend after the playmaker missed out on the win over Walsall on Saturday through illness.
After an exceptional display against Bury last Monday evening, Dack's missed a fair chunk of the week leading up to the trip against Walsall with a stomach bug.
And although the 24-year-old was left out of the squad altogether, Mowbray's hopeful the influential number 23 will be back in the side for Tuesday's trip to AFC Wimbledon - but will only know more after Sunday.
“Of course it’s a concern," Tony said after the game when asked about Dack's omission from the 18-man squad.
"It’s great for the team to get the three points without Bradley because he’s been a little bit of a talisman for us really, whether he scores or being involved in goals.
“Let’s hope Bradley is ready for Tuesday and let’s hope it was just a 24 hour bug and that some of our other lads will be ready for Tuesday, too.
“Bradley hasn’t been around the group for a few days and had no chance of playing really because he’s felt so weak and had no energy.
“He was never going to play at Walsall but hopefully he can get some food back into him, build his strength up and we’ll see on Tuesday whether he starts, whether he comes off the bench or whether he’s in the squad at all. We’ll know more on Sunday at training. We’ll assess everyone on Sunday.
“We have to get on with it, Credit to everyone for getting the result against a Walsall side unbeaten since we beat them at Ewood and stuck four goals past Doncaster recently, too."
