The 21-year-old Blackburn loanee, who has been a regular since arriving at Plainmoor, is away with Republic of Ireland's Under-21s and unavailable.
But Krystian Pearce looks set to step in having played the majority of a reserve game on Tuesday to sharpen himself up for a return to League Two action having been an unused substitute in their last two games.
Ben Harding and Billy Bodin are still sidelined and two other players who will not feature are central defender Kirtys McKenzie, who has joined Gloucester on loan, and midfielder Damon Lathrope who has headed to Skrill Premier side Hereford.
