Same again for Stanley
John Coleman is expected to select from an unchanged squad when Accrington face Macclesfield.
A 1-1 draw at Hereford on Friday ended a run of four consecutive wins but meant Stanley are now without defeat in eight npower League Two contests.
On-loan Blackburn forward Micah Evans came off the bench to net the Reds' equaliser at Edgar Street and is pushing for a place in the starting line-up, with Jayden Stockley a candidate to make way.
Luke Joyce will serve the final match of his three-game suspension for a straight red card in December's victory over Torquay.
Fellow midfielder Ian Craney is targeting a return to the matchday 16 having resumed full training following a lay-off with a broken leg.
Defender Ian Burton remains on the sidelines as he recuperates from a double hernia operation.
Midfielder Ross Draper is out for Macclesfield after he suffered a broken foot.
Draper sustained the injury during the Silkmen's New Year's Eve victory over Port Vale and x-rays subsequently revealed an undisplaced fracture of a metatarsal.
Michael Thomas could come into contention as Draper's replacement while Lewis Chalmers continues his recovery from a troublesome stomach problem.
Forward George Donnelly, who has made his loan move from Fleetwood permanent, and defender Nat Brown both miss the trip to the Crown Ground after picking up their fifth bookings of the season.
Ben Tomlinson (ankle) and Scott Kay (thigh) have returned to light training, but will not feature, nor will fellow injury victims Adam Roberts (foot), Vinny Mukendi and Greg Daniels (both knee).
Season's best for Stanley
Accrington extended their unbeaten league run in npower League Two to nine games with a 4-0 win over Macclesfield - their biggest victory of the season.
The visiting Silkmen started the livelier with Colin Daniel having two early chances, one of which took a deflection and another which Stanley keeper Ian Dunbavin kept out.
However, two former Macclesfield players combined for the Stanley opener after 13 minutes. Kevin McIntyre fired in a cross from the left which was headed home at the far post by Craig Lindfield for his fourth goal of the season.
Macclesfield pressed around the Stanley box without testing Dunbavin and the next goal was always going to be important.
That came on the stroke of half-time when Lindfield's corner bounced around the area with loan defender Kevin Long, perhaps playing his final game before he returns to parent club Burnley, powering the ball into the net from 12 yards out.
It got worse for Macc after 62 minutes when Charlie Barnett charged down the left into the box and his ball in was parried out by Jose Veiga before Micah Evans was on hand to fire home his second in two matches from four yards out.
And the win was wrapped up when Lindfield's corner was headed home from close range by skipper Andy Procter after 76 minutes.
