Stockport have parted company with striker Barry Conlon ahead of the home clash with Rotherham.
Conlon has left the club by mutual consent this week following a number of "off field" issues.
The much-travelled frontman, who only joined County in the summer, was last week banned from driving after he drove while almost twice over the legal limit.
Conlon had suffered with injury for much of his stay at Edgeley Park which has resulted in him not making the impact expected.
Right-back Mark Lynch has been nursing a knee injury but seems certain to be passed fit, although he may be forced to settle for a place on the bench.
Boss Paul Simpson has no other major injury or suspension concerns.
Rotherham make the journey hoping to play just their second fixture since November 23.
The Millers have been hit hard by the weather in recent weeks and their lengthy League Two trip to Torquay on Saturday was called off just three hours before kick-off.
That postponement has given on-loan right-back Danny Coid a better chance of making the Edgeley Park clash, though, as he battles a hamstring injury which was likely to have kept him out last weekend.
Skipper Ryan Cresswell is definitely out as he begins rehab on a broken collarbone suffered in the last game a fortnight ago, though on-loan Arsenal midfielder Mark Randall is back in training following a collarbone injury of his own but is unlikely to play.
Boss Ronnie Moore has no other injury or suspension problems but he is expecting to use all of his resources over the busy Christmas period.
"We have got a decent squad of players here and we are going to need every one of them," he told Press Association Sport.
