Bury make two changes to the side that drew at home to Portsmouth, with youth team midfielder Scott Burgess making his debut and Nathan Cameron returning to the starting line-up.
Out go Chris Hussey, who has returned to parent club Burton Albion for their play-off campaign, while Clive Platt has a calf problem.
The big changes are on the bench, with only six substitutes named and three youth teamers - full-back Marcus Poscha and strikers Regan Walker and Anthony Dudley - amongst them.
Only Brian Jensen of the seven players released by David Flitcroft in midweek has made the matchday squad, with no place for Richard Hinds, Tommy Miller or Tope Obadeyi.
The Bury boss has kept faith in transfer-listed players Ashley Grimes and Andy Procter, who make up the substitutes, along with goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook.

Welcome to the Globe Arena for Bury's final match of a truly roller coaster season.
After starting on a high following the arrival of new chairman Stewart Day, it took a dip as results and perfromances under previous manager Kevin Blackwell tailed off.
But after a patient search, it now looks as if Mr Day's first managerial appointment, David Flitcroft, was an inspired choice.
Results, form and style have all improved under his watch as the Shakers have moved from relegation battle to play-off hopefuls and finally mid-table safety.
A win today and Bury can finish as high as ninth, or as low as 13th with defeat.
But the fact that they go into the final game with no conerns is a fantastic result for both the chairman and the club.
We are just waiting here for the full line-ups, but it looks like young Scot Burgess is set to make his debut in midfield, while the travelling supporters will be hoping to give abig send-off to departing fans player of the season Brian Jensen.
