Crewe Alexandra are waiting on Mat Mitchel-King, while Cheltenham Town will make a late decision on Michael Pook.
Centre-half Mitchel-King is nursing a back problem following the incredible 4-3 defeat to 10-man Morecambe on Friday.
Crewe chief Dario Gradi will choose from Patrick Ada, Carl Martin or on-loan defender Harry Worley if Mitchel-King fails to make it.
Leading scorer Calvin Zola returned on the bench at Christie Park following hamstring and ankle ligament injuries and the 16-goal striker should be in the squad again.
The same can be said of midfielder Simon Walton after he made a late substitute appearance following a rib problem.
The versatile Ashley Westwood completes a three-match suspension, while on-loan full-back Chris Stokes is still struggling with a hamstring injury.
Cheltenham are optimistic that midfielder Pook will be able to line up for Monday's game at Gresty Road.
Pook received a knock in his face against Lincoln on Saturday and is also nursing a badly bruised nose, but he trained on Sunday and should be fit.
Striker Julian Alsop will lead the line after becoming the club's all-time leading goalscorer in the Football League with the winner on Saturday.
Midfielder Medy Elito was replaced by Andy Gallinagh in the closing stages against Lincoln, but was merely being rested with the Crewe clash in mind.
Robins manager Mark Yates has no other new injury or suspension problems as his side chase a fourth win in their last six league matches to edge closer to safety.
