Connolly has yet to recover from the calf strain he suffered last month and joins fellow striker Tom Craddock (knee) and full-back Marcos Painter (calf) on the sidelines.
Goalkeeper Trevor Carson will also miss out as he is on loan from the Shakers, meaning a recall for either John Sullivan or Phil Smith.
But defender Danny East and midfielder Simon Ferry are close to recovering from hamstring injuries and could be involved, while striker John Marquis plays the final game of his loan spell from Millwall.
