New signing Charlie MacDonald made his debut in the 1-1 draw against Crewe on Saturday but he is cup-tied, while fellow striker Kevin Lisbie is facing a spell on the sidelines after tearing his hamstring last week.
Therefore Michael Symes could be handed a rare start up front alongside 10-goal top scorer David Mooney.
Defender Ben Chorley and midfielder Martin Rowlands are hoping to shake off the knocks which kept them out at the weekend.
But midfielder Anthony Griffith serves the second game of a two-match ban after he was shown his second red card of the season against Yeovil in midweek.
