Tony Taylor looks set to receive some second half minutes as Estoril return home to Estádio António Coimbra da Mota to take on Liga de Honra leaders Penafiel.
Taylor came on for the final 20 minutes of Os Canarinhos's draw to Oliveirense last weekend and should find himself in a similar role up top on Saturday.
Fellow American Greg Garza could also make his Estoril debut now that his transfer paperwork has been processed.
The former Sporting Lisbon man signed a two year deal with the club at the end of August but has yet to see action with his new team.
Compatriot Bryan Arguez will struggle to make the gameday roster and is not expected to play.
It has been an even start to the season for Estoril who come into the match with a win, a loss and a draw. Meanwhile their opponents sit atop the standings but just with seven points on the young season.
Estoril will be without Anderson Luis and Joăo Coimbra while Penafiel are not reporting any major injuries.
