Bruce remains without several players, including two with long-term injuries.
He explained to safc.com: "I've seen David Meyler running around the training ground today while Fraizer is just starting out. We could do without two cruciate ligament injuries over the space of just a few games.
"Michael Turner's is a nasty one and he still isn't weight-bearing at the moment. We could do with some better luck in that department."
