Burton are targeting a top-six spot at home to MK Dons but have doubts over Colin Daniel and David Templeton.
Defender Daniel was forced off in the Brewers’ 1-0 win over Fleetwood on Saturday after taking a bang to the head and must pass concussion protocols.
Midfielder Templeton picked up a calf injury in the same game and will also be assessed.
Nathan Broadhead and Richard Nartey (both hamstring) are unlikely to start as Burton seek a fifth win in six games to move into the Sky Bet League One play-off places.
MK Dons expect midfielder Alex Gilbey to shrug off a knee injury.
Gilbey limped off during the 1-1 draw with Coventry on Saturday, allowing former Blackburn and QPR midfielder Ben Gladwin to make his Dons debut.
It was Gladwin’s first professional appearance for 795 days following a serious knee injury in November 2017.
Norwich loanee Carlton Morris came off the bench against Coventry to score on his debut and could be rewarded with a first start.
