The on loan striker had returned to parent club Wolverhampton Wanderers after suffering a strain during the Leasing.com Trophy clash with Manchester United U21s in late October.

And should he suffer no ill-effects this week, he will report back to Cantley Park to continue his loan next week.

Boss Darren Moore said: “Niall, providing everything is okay, should be back with us after the weekend.

“It's great news for us.”

Ennis’ fellow Wolves loanee Cameron John is set to be assessed ahead of the Leasing.com Trophy second round clash with Leicester City U21s on Wednesday night.

John had been out of action for more than two months with an ankle injury before returning in Sunday’s FA Cup defeat to Gillingham.

With Moore admitting he had brought John back earlier than he would have liked due to a concussion to Donervon Daniels and Tom Anderson’s suspension, he says he will exercise caution with the 20-year-old.

“Obviously with him coming back from injury, we will have to see how he is,” Moore said.

“It was a tough test for Cameron on Saturday and there were things he did in the game that he did well.

“We’ve got to assess him and see how his body is because we brought him back a week earlier than we’d have wanted to .

“He came through the game but we’ve just got to assess him ahead of Wednesday.”

Moore revealed Daniels has yet to fully complete the FA’s concussion protocol following the head injury he received at Wycombe Wanderers last month.

But the Luton Town loanee does have a chance of being given the all-clear ahead of the Leicester tie.

“Donervon is another one we will check on,” Moore said.

“He’s still following the concussion protocol and we’ll make a decision on him on Wednesday.

“First things first, we’ll make sure his health is fine and the doctor is happy with him.

“On Sunday it wasn’t right to play him so we took him out straight away.”
