Gary Dicker is rated very doubtful after getting injured in the Boxing Day defeat.
Still out are Michael Raynes (hamstring) and Matty McNeil (back).
There are no fresh injury worries for Leeds.
Robert Snodgrass will be hoping to be recalled to the starting line up after his last minute equaliser against Leicester.
Jermaine Beckford and Andy Robinson were both making their first appearances after long lay offs and may be rested after playing the full 90 minutes on Friday.
This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since the 1923/24 season when Leeds won the old second division title.
In Leeds three previous visits to Stockport they have yet to come away with a victory.
