Dean Leacock (groin), Lanre Oyebanjo (hamstring), Conor Henderson (ankle), Marvin Elliott (hamstring) and Josh Simpson (hamstring) are all out through injury while Joe Walsh completes his three-match suspension. Darren Ward, not available against Swindon last week, returns.
Striker Marc McNulty (shin) is a doubt for United with boss Nigel Clough, who has allowed winger Jamal Campbell-Ryce to join Notts County on loan, likely to rotate his squad during a hectic period of fixtures.
Reds have won three out of their last five and two in a row for the first time since the opening week of the season. United have won four out of their last five but have lost five times on their travels in the League, most recently at Gillingham (2-0) a month ago.THE FORM GUIDE
VIEW FROM THE BENCH
: "They are in decent form and will still believe with the quality of player they have that they can make the automatic promotion spots. It's going to be tough but it's a game we're really looking forward to after two excellent performances."Dean Saunders
Nigel Clough: "Saturday will be tough but all we can do is concentrate on ourselves. We've won our last three and scored seven goals which is brilliant."
