Executive chairman Peter Trembling has indicated his desire to keep the defender but he fears the 20-year-old has played his last game for the club.
Captain John Thompson returned for their 4-1 defeat of Burton Albion on Monday after suffering from illness that would have kept him out of the postponed Boxing Day match with Grimsby. He could deputise at right-back.
Defender Jamie Clapham is still missing with a knee injury but Johnnie Jackson is set to retain his place in midfield having returned to the starting XI against Burton after a month out with a knee injury.
Caretaker boss Dave Kevan told the club's official website: "There is nothing new (injuries) from Monday's game. We are reasonably healthy and in good spirits and are looking forward to the game."
