Beckford, on a season-long loan from Leicester, has been sidelined since January with a hamstring injury and will not be included in Robins' plans.
But fellow forward James Vaughan will return to contention after a two-game ban and Sean Scannell has an outside chance of returning to the squad after sitting out two matches due to a hamstring problem.
Winger Danny Ward is pushing for his first start since January after recovering from a broken bone in his foot. He has stepped off the substitutes' bench in Huddersfield's previous two matches.
Defender Calum Woods is also pushing for a recall after missing out recently with a hamstring strain, but midfielder Keith Southern remains sidelined with an Achilles injury.
