The former Derby striker was sidelined for United's penalty shoot-out success over Hartlepool last week and the weekend's victory over Brentford in the league.
Porter played 78 minutes at Boundary Park, but was then forced off with a dead leg, but he could be available for tonight's League One clash against Walsall.
Meanwhile, Ryan Flynn seems unlikely to play a part as he hasn't fully recovered from his injury yet, whilst Chris Morgan, Andy Taylor and Johnny Ertl are all still nursing long term injuries.
It wouldn't surprise fans if Danny Wilson went with the same starting 11 which beat Brentford at the weekend, with Jordan Slew partnering Richard Cresswell up front.
