Rotherham United will be pressed into defensive changes against a Macclesfield Town side hoping to welcome back two players.
Nick Fenton will definitely miss out for Rotherham after injuring his calf in the 1-0 win against Bury at the weekend and he will be out for two to three weeks.
And the Millers have a doubt over former Tranmere man Ian Sharps, who is nursing a hamstring problem.
Pablo Mills will come in for Fenton and boss Ronnie Moore will be forced into a reshuffle if Sharps is ruled out, with Gavin Gunning possibly moving into the centre of defence and Jamie Green coming in at left-back.
Experienced duo Paul Warne and Andy Liddle will play no part once again due to foot and Achilles injuries respectively as the Millers continue their push for automatic promotion.
Macclesfield could welcome back Izak Reid and Paul Bolland for the game at the Don Valley Stadium.
The duo both returned to training on Monday following their respective ankle and rib problems and they could earn a place on the bench if caretaker boss Gary Simpson deems them fit enough to play.
Carl Tremarco is pushing for a starting role after coming off the bench to make his return from a hernia problem, which kept him sidelined for a month-and-a-half, in Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Dagenham.
Ricky Sappleton will undergo a knee operation on Tuesday and the club will have to wait for the outcome of that before learning the extent of the damage, which could potentially end the striker's season.
Colin Daniel (hamstring) is still three to four weeks away from a return, while long-term absentee Hamza Bencherif (ankle) remains sidelined.
