Full squad bonus for Barker
Manager Richie Barker will have a full squad to choose from when Bury return to action against Chesterfield.
Barker has no injury or suspension worries ahead of the game, which will be the Shakers' first for a fortnight following postponements against Hartlepool and Carlisle.
On Monday, a group of volunteers descended on Gigg Lane to clear remaining areas of snow from the playing surface and the club are confident the game will go ahead.
David Worrall limped out of Bury's last game - a 1-1 draw with npower League One leaders Charlton - but the winger has fully recovered from his ankle knock.
Lenell John-Lewis will be hoping to retain his place in the starting XI after he marked a rare start at the Valley with the opening goal.
Craig Westcarr could return to the Chesterfield squad.
Westcarr has missed the last six matches in all competitions after suffering an ankle injury during the home defeat to Exeter on January 7. The postponement of the visit of League One leaders Charlton on Saturday has increased Westcarr's chances of being involved and manager John Sheridan could even restore the forward to the starting line-up.
However, he will face competition from new signing Nicky Ajose. The former Manchester United trainee made his debut as a second-half substitute in the defeat at Carlisle nine days ago after arriving on loan from Peterborough for the remainder of the season.
Ajose was part of the Bury squad that won promotion along with Chesterfield last season, scoring 13 goals in 28 appearances during a loan spell at Gigg Lane.
On-loan defender James Hurst and midfielder Mark Allott may also have recovered from knocks they sustained against Carlisle, while French midfielder Jimmy Juan is progressing well as he bids to overcome a calf injury.
Meanwhile, Chesterfield's home game against Charlton has been rearranged for February 28. The match is on a Tuesday night and will kick-off at 7.45pm.
Schumacher Captain Fantastic
A late equaliser from Bury captain Steve Schumacher denied resurgent Chesterfield a third win in four league games in a 1-1 draw at Gigg Lane.
Former Bury loanee Nicky Ajose gave Chesterfield a 42nd-minute lead with his first goal on loan from Peterborough.
With just two minutes left, Schumacher headed home to give Bury a deserved draw, although the point was enough to edge Chesterfield above Rochdale at the bottom of npower League One.
The visitors began to frustrate Bury and created an opening for Ajose, whose close-range shot was blocked by defender Efe Sodje, but Ajose broke the deadlock as half-time approached, escaping the attentions of Sodje to turn in Alex Mendy's low cross from six yards.
And Chesterfield might have doubled their lead before the break as Mark Hughes headed a Jack Lester shot off the goalline before goalkeeper Cameron Belford parried Mendy's shot.
Chesterfield goalkeeper Tommy Lee then denied Andy Bishop with a fine reflex save, but with time running out, Joe Skarz hooked the ball into the danger zone for Schumacher to claim the equaliser.
