A calf injury has ruled Burton defender Richard Nartey out of the Sky Bet League One visit of Peterborough.
The on-loan 21-year-old returned to parent club Chelsea for treatment after being forced off in last weekend’s defeat to Ipswich and is not expected to return to training until next week.
Midfielder Stephen Quinn (groin) and defender John Brayford (knee) are both doubtful.
Defender Jake Buxton (ribs) is back in part-training but continues his recovery.
Peterborough’s 25-goal striker Ivan Toney serves the final match of his two-game suspension.
Centre-back Frankie Kent (knee) remains sidelined after missing the last two games.
Record signing Mo Eisa deputised for Toney in the defeat at Fleetwood last time out but he has gone almost three months without a goal.
Less experienced forwards Ricky-Jade Jones and Idris Kanu are potential options for manager Darren Ferguson.
