The 20-year-old midfielder is banned after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season in the 2-0 defeat to Chesterfield last Saturday meaning Curtis Nelson will lead out his boyhood club.
In Hourihane's absence, manager John Sheridan looks set to choose two out of Dominic Blizzard, Luke Young and Hamza Bencherif to play in the centre of midfield.
Sheridan is short of attacking options with Tope Obadeyi and Marvin Morgan both sidelined and he could hand Sheffield Wednesday loanee Caolan Lavery his first start since arriving at Home Park.
