Chris Wilder is hopeful of a triple fitness boost, ahead of Friday trip to face Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.
Speaking ahead of the televised clash against Nigel Adkins's Tigers, Wilder remarked: "James Wilson was in on Wednesday, he's improving by the day and hopefully he'll be involved on Friday, if not Tuesday.
"Holmes and Brooks were also in on Wednesday and they have injuries that can improve quickly, so we'll see how they are later, but hopefully it's good news."
With Simon Moore now available after a three-match ban, Wilder has a decision to make on who starts in goal.
The boss added: "We'll make a decision on who plays in goal, but Jamal has done well and is in possession of the shirt, so Simon will have to move him.
"We're after competition for places and we've certainly got that in that department. Jamal has improved through experience and good coaching, Wardy is top draw and works the goalkeepers very hard."
