Burton hope to have on-loan defender Tom Parkes available for the visit of Bournemouth.
The Leicester youngster twisted a knee during the defeat at Dagenham but he has responded to treatment and is expected to resume training before the end of the week. Former Chester defender Shaun Kelly is likely to come into the side if Parkes does not make it.
Brewers boss Paul Peschisolido is also hoping for good news on Artur Krysiak`s fitness. The goalkeeper pulled out of the game at Dagenham last weekend after he suffered an ankle injury in the warm-up and was replaced by veteran Kevin Poole.
Greg Pearson and Steve Kabba are vying for the right to partner leading scorer Shaun Harrad in attack.
Aaron Webster, Jimmy Phillips, Romuald Boco and Keith Gilroy are also pushing for recalls.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is keeping tight-lipped over his team selection as the Cherries go in search of a victory which will seal their promotion to League One.
Howe has been forced to choose from a depleted squad for much of the season due to a lengthy injury list and a transfer embargo, but he will have 19 players to select from for the clash with the Brewers.
The Cherries boss is expected to recall the fit-again Ryan Garry in defence, with Shaun Cooper expected to drop down to the bench as he is still not 100% fit following a long-term injury.
Mark Molesley is now the only player unavailable for selection due to a foot injury as Bournemouth look to join Notts County and Rochdale in the third tier next season.
