Accrington will be without on-loan striker Terry Gornell when they face Tranmere in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy first round.
Gornell joined Stanley from Tranmere last week and is ineligible to face his parent club under the conditions of the loan deal.
Stanley boss John Coleman could also be without fellow striker Craig Lindfield, who has been struggling with a knee injury.
Coleman will be hoping striker Rory Boulding (Achilles) is available to return and summer signing Andy Parkinson will be hoping to secure a starting berth.
Defender Sean Hessey is also an injury concern as he is struggling with a knock, while Charlie Barnett has also picked up a knock and faces a race against time to prove his fitness.
