Bury defender Will Aimson will return to contention for the home game against Morecambe after suspension.
Aimson missed last Saturday's loss at Crawley after receiving two yellow cards in the previous week's defeat at Lincoln.
Danny Mayor continues to be monitored after an ongoing issue saw him named among the substitutes last week. The winger stepped off the bench to score, but remains doubtful. The Shakers are chasing their first win in six matches in all competitions.

Morecambe skipper Barry Roche is expected to return to the starting line-up after suspension, with Mark Halstead set to make way. Goalkeeper Roche received two yellow cards in the recent home win against Northampton and sat out last week's defeat to Oldham.
Midfielder Kevin Ellison and forward Vadaine Oliver are among those pushing for recalls, but boss Jim Bentley is unlikely to make too many changes. Bentley felt his side were unlucky not to take at least a point off Oldham and is expected to keep a settled line-up as they chase a second win of the season.
