The midfielder withdrew from international duty with the Republic of Ireland due to a calf injury and missed the 3-2 defeat against Reading on Saturday.
With Ryan Ledson serving the final game of his ban and Ben Pearson the second of his three-match suspension at Elland Road, Neil is short of numbers in the middle of the park.
“We’ll have a look at Alan today,” said the PNE boss at Monday morning’s press conference.
“He should take part in a bit of training and then we can make a judgement call on him.
“It’s a really quick turnaround.
“We’ll have a look and if he can offer us anything he might feature on the bench.”
