Nathan Stanton could be rushed back from injury to bolster Burton`s depleted squad for the visit of Macclesfield.
The centre-half has missed six matches since suffering a groin strain at the start of the month but with two other players also injured and four now suspended, Stanton could be asked to play through the pain barrier.
Fellow defenders Scott Malone and Paul Boertien are also nursing groin problems and will remain sidelined along with banned midfielder Paul McGrath.
Albion have further suspension absentees following the defeat at Oxford. Centre-halves Darren Moore and Tom Parkes were sent off on Sunday while midfielder Russell Penn collected his 10th yellow card of the season.
Boss Paul Peschisolido has no plans to recall winger Lewis Young and striker James Ellison from respective loan spells at Forest Green and Hednesford Town.
However, the Canadian said he was considering registering youth team midfielder Sylvanus Bockarie in time for the game.
Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson will be without Paul Bolland and Paul Morgan
Midfielder Bolland is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury and skipper Morgan is out for the season with a broken arm.
The Silkmen have no other injury or suspension concerns as they bid to bid bounce back from Saturday's 4-0 home defeat at the hands of Stevenage.
Simpson said: "The most important thing for us is that we don't get too hung up on just the one game.
"Burton is going to be tough, they are fighting for their lives.
"Like ourselves they have been playing catch up and I'm sure they will have looked at their next two home games against us and Barnet with a view to picking up six points."
