Burton continue their battle against relegation when Cheltenham visit the Pirelli Stadium but they will do so without Sam Winnall.
The on-loan Wolves striker will miss three of Albion`s remaining six matches through suspension after he was sent off during the defeat to Bury in midweek.
His enforced absence will pave the way for either Calvin Zola or Richard Walker to return to the starting line up on Saturday.
That could be the only change made by boss Paul Peschisolido, who was pleased with his side`s performance in the 1-0 loss at Gigg Lane.
The Canadian was angered by the display in the defeat at Morecambe in the previous game and made three changes on Tuesday night, with Jimmy Phillips, Greg Pearson and Tony James coming in for Adam Bolder, Walker and Tom Parkes.
Centre-half Nathan Stanton continues to nurse a groin problem and it remains to be seen whether he will return to the squad
Cheltenham winger Josh Low is touch and go but Jeff Goulding and Keith Lowe remain on the sidelines.
Low has missed the Robins' last two games having taken a blow to his leg in training and will undergo a late fitness test to decide whether he is included in manager Mark Yates` matchday 18.
Striker Goulding remains out with ankle ligament damage but could return after Easter to play a part in Town`s final two games of the season.
The outlook is less promising for right-back Lowe, however, who is nursing a similar injury and will play no further part in the campaign.
Young forward Theo Lewis could get some minutes under his belt having impressed for the club`s reserves in midweek.
