Accrington hope to have midfielder Sean McConville available against Portsmouth.
Stanley’s vice-captain had to be withdrawn during the first half of the draw at Tranmere last weekend after falling awkwardly on his shoulder.
McConville, who has previously broken his collarbone, missed three games earlier this season with a similar injury, but to the other shoulder. He is being assessed ahead of Saturday’s match.
Accrington boss John Coleman made eight changes against Bolton in the Leasing.com Trophy on Tuesday night and the likes of Dimitar Evtimov, Joe Maguire, Harvey Rodgers and Colby Bishop are likely to be among those players recalled to the starting line up.
Portsmouth boss Kenny Jackett will be forced to make changes in defence at the Crown Ground.
Brandon Haunstrup limped off against Peterborough and will undergo a meniscus operation on Friday that will keep him out for up to eight wees.
Christian Burgess will serve a one-match ban after he received his fifth yellow card of the season in the draw with Posh.
Andy Cannon and Sean Raggett have both trained without any problems and are available for Pompey, who are unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions.
