York winger Sander Puri could return to the starting line-up against AFC Wimbledon.
The Estonia international has been restricted to two appearances since joining the Minstermen in the summer due to a hamstring injury, but is expected to feature on Saturday before heading off on international duty.
Recent loan signing Ryan Brobbel has been called into the Northern Ireland Under-21 squad and is unavailable and fellow striker Ryan Bowman sits out the second game of his three-match ban.
Wes Fletcher (ankle) and Richard Cresswell (eye) both remain sidelined, so Michael Coulson is hoping for a recall alongside four-goal leading scorer Ryan Jarvis.
AFC Wimbledon have fresh injury worries.
Defender Rhys Weston and wingers Chris Arthur and Kevin Sainte-Luce all came off during the midweek 5-3 Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat at Brentford feeling slight hamstring problems.
Centre-half Will Antwi is also set to miss out again, having recently resumed full training following a hernia operation only to suffer a setback which will require a scan.
Alan Bennett's hamstring injury will be assessed while Andy Frampton, Barry Fuller and Luke Moore should return to the starting line-up after they were rested in midweek.
