Northampton will be without Zander Diamond and Darren Carter for their home clash with Burton.
Midfielder Carter picked up his 10th yellow card of the season in last weekend’s 1-0 win at Accrington and begins his two-match suspension, while centre-back Diamond is ineligible under the terms of his loan from the Brewers.
Cobblers boss Chris Wilder has hinted Ben Tozer and Gregor Robertson will be the men to replace the pair.
Defender Kelvin Langmead (knee) could be in the matchday squad for the first time in 11 months as Wilder’s side look to keep their survival hopes alive.
Adam McGurk will return to the Burton squad at Northampton.
The forward comes back into the reckoning after recovering from the thigh and hip problems he suffered against York.
Albion boss Gary Rowett has a decision to make at right-back, with David Gray outstanding last week after replacing Phil Edwards who had been ill all week with flu. Edwards is fit again, presenting Rowett with a dilemma.
Striker Billy Kee and defender Marcus Holness are also fit having recovered from the same bug.
