Bury will welcome back on-loan midfielder Jordan Sinnott for the clash with the Robins.
Sinnott, borrowed from Huddersfield, was forced to miss out when the Shakers travelled to Norwich in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday as the terms of his loan deal made him ineligible, yet he can return in the league.
Shakers boss Kevin Blackwell is expected to have a similar squad at his disposal to the one which was beaten 6-3 at Carrow Road in front of hundreds of travelling fans who had arrived on free transport courtesy of the club's owner.
Rwanda international Jessy Reindorf could come into Blackwell's XI after arriving from the bench to score a wonder goal in the last minute against the Canaries.
Cheltenham will be without defender Troy Brown.
The 22-year-old former Rotherham defender is sidelined for two-to-three weeks with a slight hamstring tear so Ryan Inniss will deputise.
Inniss made his senior debut in the midweek Capital One Cup defeat at West Ham on Tuesday night and will make his first league start against the Shakers.
Striker Jamie Cureton is progressing well from his shoulder injury but this weekend comes too soon and it is more likely he could be involved in the Portsmouth game on Tuesday.
