Woods has been struggling with a groin problem and was replaced by Simon Gillett at half-time during the midweek win over Sheffield Wednesday.

Gillett will return to the starting line-up if Woods fails to recover in time but otherwise O’Driscoll has no new injury or suspension problems as his side chase a third straight league win.

Jason Shackell and James O’Connor are expected to continue alongside each other in central defence and James Hayter is likely to retain his place up front in tandem with Billy Sharp, who scored his ninth goal of the season on Tuesday night and his sixth in his last six games.
