Keinan Davis and Josh Onomah should both be fit for Friday’s clash with Bristol City – but Mile Jedinak looks set to miss out.
Davis has struggled with a hamstring injury since making a brilliant first start against Norwich City at the weekend.
Onomah came off in that Canaries game with a head issue.
But both Young Lions are looking like being available for the Robins encounter.
Jedinak, however, is struggling.
Steve Bruce said: “Keinan has had a niggling hamstring injury, which has hung over him all week really.
“He trained on Wednesday and was a little bit sore still. We will see how he is this morning. But I expect him to make Friday. Onomah will be fine.
“Jedinak is sick. He reported in sick this morning. We will see how he is. I doubt Friday will be right for him.”
