Among the topics up for discussion was the unavailability of loanee Luke Murphy, who is ineligible to play against his parent club.
The midfielder left Leeds for a temporary stint at Burton back in January and he quickly set about making up for lost time.
So far the 27-year-old has featured 18 times for Burton, becoming an integral part of their side and aiding in their fight against relegation.
“It’s a big blow missing Luke against his parent club, he’s been one of our most consistent players,” Clough said.
“His fitness has improved but it will do him good to get a breather, too.”
Murphy quickly fell out of favour at Leeds, with Monk opting to exclude the former fan favourite from first-team duties.
By the time he left Leeds he was making do with under-23 games and he managed just one 58-minute appearance for the Whites all season.
He will no doubt be frustrated not to feature against his employers this weekend but, assuming he makes a permanent move in the summer, they could meet again sooner rather than later.
