Hartlepool midfielder Andy Monkhouse is hoping to return to contention at Burton as his side bid to halt a run of five straight defeats.
Monkhouse has been sidelined for all five of those losses due to a hamstring injury, but could return to action.
Striker Marlon Harewood showed no reaction to his ankle injury after playing the full 90 minutes in last week's home defeat to Chesterfield and is expected to resume up front alongside 16-goal teenager Luke James.
Defender Christian Burgess (ankle) is not expected to feature again this season and has returned to parent club Middlesbrough, while Jonathan Franks and James Poole are among those pushing for recalls.
