The in-form Reds head into the match unbeaten in 11 matches and looking to build on their 5-1 drubbing of rivals Leicester at the weekend.
However, Davies will have to do without holding midfielder Guy Moussi, who is still nursing an ankle injury.
Julian Bennett will also be missing as he struggles to return from a long-term knee injury.
Meanwhile, striker Joe Garner and defender James Perch are looking to push their way back into the squad.
The duo were overlooked at the weekend but are hoping to make the 18-man matchday squad.
