Striker Haber has been struggling with a foot injury and that was one of the reasons why the Alex boss decided to withdraw him against Coventry at the weekend. Colclough picked up one or two knocks after being on the receiving end of some challenges and the club will continue to be cautious with veteran forward Lowe.
Midfielder Billy Bingham has also been struggling with a sore back and that is one of the reasons why he lost his place following the return of David Fox.
The more long term absentees are Harry Davis (knee), George Ray (ankle) and Lauri Dalla Valle (ankle).
