Lee Molyneux will come into the Accrington squad when they welcome Bury to the Store First Stadium.
The midfielder, who was voted player of the season when he was a Stanley player last term, rejoined the club on loan from Crewe on Thursday and could go straight into James Beattie's starting line-up.
Beattie has no fresh news on the injury front although striker Marcus Carver has returned from a loan spell because of a shin injury, although he would not have taken part this weekend anyway.
Accrington may again go without a back-up goalkeeper on the substitutes' bench, as they have done in the last two games, because Andrew Dawber still has a thigh problem.
Midfielder Danny Mayor will again be missing for Bury.
The Sheffield Wednesday loanee was sent off in the heavy 4-0 loss against Chesterfield and will serve the second game of a three-match suspension.
The only injury absentee for Shakers boss David Flitcroft is young forward Regan Walker, who has a knock and is struggling for fitness.
Flitcroft's men have failed to score in their last two games so Tope Obadeyi, recently back at the JD Stadium following his loan spell with Plymouth, may come into consideration to start his first game for the club since September.
