Dean Morgan could return to the Chesterfield starting line-up when the league leaders host Burton.
The forward has been out since suffering a groin injury at Sheffield Wednesday in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy at the start of October.
He returned with a 15-minute cameo from the bench against Harrow in the FA Cup and followed that up with a goalscoring outing for the reserves in midweek.
League Two player of the month Craig Davies is certain to return to the side after he was rested in the cup, with a handful of other changes expected to be made by boss John Sheridan.
With Jack Hunt (groin) still a doubt, fellow loanee Kelvin Lomax is ready to continue at right-back after making his first start for the club at Harrow last weekend.
Experienced defender Darren Moore returns to the Burton squad.
However, the giant centre-half is not guaranteed to go straight back into the starting line up on his return from a one-match suspension.
Moore may have missed the FA Cup win over Oxford due to a hamstring injury anyway, but boss Paul Peschisolido was so impressed with his defence during the first-round tie that he could name an unchanged back line.
"I thought the back four on Sunday were magnificent and Tony James, on his return from his loan spell at Hereford, was a big part of that," said Peschisolido. "Darren is a big presence for us, as we saw in keeping the clean sheet in the previous game against Port Vale, but against that I have to weigh in that it would be hard to leave anyone out after the Oxford performance."
Aaron Webster was a surprise omission from the starting line-up against Oxford and he is another hoping to be recalled, with Peschisolido hinting he may shake up his midfield at the b2net Stadium.
"We`ve proved that we can adapt to different systems, so I`ve certainly got a few decisions to make," added the Canadian. "Russell Penn has forced his way back and Aaron is trying to do the same, and it's a fabulous position for a manager to be in."M
