The Brewers' top scorer has been forced to reduce his workload in training recently due to a groin problem.
And Rowett has employed a 4-5-1 formation away from home of late, meaning Zola or striker partner Billy Kee would have to make way.
Kee, who scored the winning goal against Accrington last weekend, is expected to get the nod against the Spireites.
Rowett has been boosted by news that goalkeeper Stuart Tomlinson could return before the new year.
Tomlinson was expected to miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury, although the weekend will come too soon for him.
The Brewers have no other injury or suspension worries ahead of the trip.
