Bury goalkeeper Cameron Belford has been ruled out of the trip to Aldershot.
Belford suffered a broken cheekbone in the 1-0 win over Southend last weekend.
Boss Alan Knill will have to choose either youngster Richie Branagan, who replaced Belford and impressed on his debut, or Owain Fon Williams following his one-month loan switch from Stockport.
Nicky Ajose has extended his loan from Manchester United and will continue his impressive strike partnership with top scorer Ryan Lowe.
Fellow striker Andy Bishop does not require an operation but is likely to remain on the sidelines for some time with tendinitis.
