Bury boss Alan Knill will be without on-loan midfielder David Worrall for the visit of West Brom in the Carling Cup first round.
Worrall last week rejoined the Shakers from Albion on an initial six-month loan but he is ineligible to face his parent club.
Strikers Andy Bishop and Andy Morrell are continuing their recovery from hernia problems but both men look set to remain sidelined.
While Bishop remains about two weeks away from a return to action, Morrell has started training again but the clash with the Baggies may come too soon for him.
Midfielder Damien Allen, a summer signing from Morecambe, missed Saturday`s 3-0 home defeat against Bournemouth due to a groin strain and looks set to remain absent.
