Burton will check on Billy Kee ahead of their trip to fellow automatic promotion contenders Port Vale.
Kee is nursing a hamstring injury following the 3-3 draw with Accrington on Monday. The striker played through the pain at the Crown Ground and is now a doubt for Friday night.
Albion boss Gary Rowett will have his fingers crossed for positive news on Kee, who has scored 13 goals this season, especially as Calvin Zola is still struggling with a long-standing hamstring and hip problem and Michael Symes continues to look off the pace after suffering a groin strain a month ago.
Should there be a shortage of strikers, winger Alex MacDonald, who played 70 minutes against Accrington as a centre-forward, could move inside.
One player who will definitely miss out is suspended midfielder Robbie Weir who completes a two-match ban.
Victory for Burton would move them into third place, a point behind Vale, ahead of Saturday's fixtures.
