Dennis Oli and Matt McClure are in with a shout of being included in the squad for the npower League 2 opener at York City on Saturday.
Oli and McClure have been struggling with knee injuries, but Gary Waddock says the pair “could train in the next day or two” before the squad depart on Friday lunchtime.
He added: “We’ll see how they are. We would like to involve them, but we don’t want to push them.”
Fellow forward Stuart Beavon and centre-back Dave Winfield have overcome illness and injury respectively to be in contention for the trip to the newly-promoted side.
However, the game will come too soon for Danny Foster, who is “getting closer but still about two weeks away” from returning to match action.
