Derry, appointed as Chris Kiwomya's successor on Wednesday, inherits a squad with mounting problems ahead of the first-round tie.
Danny Haynes begins a three-match suspension after his red card in the league defeat to Coventry last weekend while fellow striker Marcus Haber is ineligible under the terms of his loan from Stevenage.
Full-backs Alan Sheehan (hamstring), Mustapha Dumbuya and midfielder David Bell are injury doubts and will need to be assessed while defender Haydn Hollis (knee) and striker Enoch Showunmi (back) remain out. Showunmi has resumed training but the trip to the north east will come too soon for him to be involved.
