Accrington Stanley V Burton Albion - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Stanley duo remain absent

Accrington are set to be without Francis Jeffers and Nicky Hunt as they look to continue their recent resurgence against Burton.

Former Everton and Arsenal striker Jeffers missed Stanley's last-gasp Good Friday triumph over Wycombe due to a hamstring injury picked up in their previous outing against league leaders Gillingham.

He remains a major doubt for boss Leam Richardson, while defender Hunt will stay on the sidelines with a similar complaint.

Padraig Amond is in contention after the forward came back from an abductor problem as a substitute at Adams Park.

Ex-Blackburn midfielder Amine Linganzi has made himself available for selection despite a recent family bereavement.

The Reds lie four points above the npower League Two relegation zone with five games of the season remaining.

Burton boss Gary Rowett could bring Calvin Zola back into the fold.

The striker missed Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Chesterfield with a hamstring injury, but is expected to be ready in time to travel.

On-loan Doncaster midfielder Lee Fowler is in contention to make his first appearance for the Brewers following his arrival at the club on Thursday.

Defender Aaron Webster could be included after recovering from his hamstring issue while Nathan Stanton (knee) is also now available for selection.

Michael Symes is likely to start in attack once again after playing for 67 minutes against Chesterfield.

The centre-forward missed the draw at Dagenham a fortnight ago with a groin injury but came through Saturday's test unscathed and looks set to keep his place in the side.
