The Irish international went off with a groin strain in the 1-1 draw with Everton on Sunday but Hughton said this morning: "We think he'll be okay. He hasn't trained but hopefully he'll train this morning and hopefully he'll be okay."

Sam Baldock and Beram Kayal came through 60 minutes of the under-23 team's 2-2 draw with Blackburn on Monday and both are set to play again for the under-23 side against Middlesbrough tomorrow.

Midfielder Steve Sidwell (back) is still ruled out.
