Alli limped out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over Northampton in midweek following a late challenge from Cobblers midfielder Ishmel Demontagnac and the teenager continues to feel the effects of the tackle.
Lee Hodson and Samir Carruthers are both away on international duty with Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland Under-21s respectively while injured trio Dean Bowditch (groin), Daniel Powell (ankle) and Tom Flanagan (ankle) remain unavailable.
Ian McLoughlin, Jon Otsemobor, Ben Reeves and Alan Smith all impressed against Northampton having been left out of the starting XI for the league win at Sheffield United, and the quartet will be hoping to have done enough to keep their places in the team.
