Bury hope to kick-start their season when they host Accrington in Sky Bet League Two but will need to do so without the suspended Nathan Cameron.
The 21-year-old defender was shown a second yellow card last week for dissent and was duly fined two weeks wages by Shakers boss Kevin Blackwell.
The former Leeds manager will also be without Shane Byrne after the midfielder had his contract terminated by mutual consent on Wednesday having been dogged by injury and illness last term.
Loan signing Jordan Sinnott could be in line for his first start, though, after making an appearance from the bench at Oxford last week following his arrival from Huddersfield.
Danny Webber looks set to continue up front for Accrington.
The former Sheffield United striker recovered in time to face Portsmouth last week and will be looking to add to his goalscoring tally after opening his account for Stanley on the first day of the season during the 4-1 defeat at Newport.
With no fresh injury concerns boss James Beattie may opt to keep the same starting XI that held Pompey last week, which would see Kal Naismith makes his second start for the club after joining from Rangers.
Stanley have won just once in their last five visits to Bury.
