Jacques Maghoma is suspended for Burton's game at home to play-off-bound Accrington.
The midfielder was sent off in the closing stages of the game at Southend last weekend for making a gesture and using foul and abusive language towards the home crowd.
Albion boss Paul Peschisolido said: "Jacques was stupid. He got involved and it was just naivety on his part. I was getting abused as well but you just can't react.
"They wind you up and in the end they win because he's got sent off and he's the one who'll get punished for it with a ban."
Adam Bolder or Jimmy Phillips could replace Maghoma, while Tom Parkes, Sam Winnall and Richard Walker are also among those players pushing for recalls.
