Leeds United captain Alan Thompson makes his comeback from injury in the reserve game at Scunthorpe on Wednesday.
The former Villa midfielder has been out since 13th October and will be pushing for a return against Swindon on Saturday.
Fellow midfielder Shaun Derry is also continuing his fightback to fitness at Glanford Park following a heel problem.
United boss Dennis Wise will be hoping to have both back quickly with Jonathan Douglas and David Pruton set to miss the FA Cup first round replay with Hereford due to suspension.
Douglas was missing from the United side beaten by Bury in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday due to a call-up to the Republic of Ireland squad while a number of other players were hit by a sickness bug.
Assistant manager Dave Bassett had no complaints about Filipe Da Costa's straight red card which did little to help Leeds' cause as they went down 2-1 - their first home defeat in eight months.
The Portuguese winger was dismissed for violent conduct after a retaliatory foul on Paul Scott three minutes before half-time.
Bassett said: "I'm told Filipe's tackle was dangerous so we can have no complaints about his dismissal. If you make that sort of challenge you will get sent off."
Leon Constantine, also making his first Leeds start, opened the scoring, but Bury hit back to secure a shock win with goals from Ben Futcher and Andy Bishop.
Bassett added: "We started well and got the goal, but defended two corners poorly and they scored from both. We normally pride ourselves on defending set pieces.
"We had 19 efforts on their goal and they had five on ours. We dominated the second half, but Bury rode their luck, they are in the next round and good luck to them."
