Plenty for Rowett to ponder

Burton are expected to have an unchanged squad for Accrington's visit to the Pirelli Stadium.

Michael Symes was the only injury absentee at Torquay on Tuesday night and a knee problem will keep the striker on the sidelines again at the weekend.

Albion boss Gary Rowett has options as he seeks a first win in five league matches.

Midfielders Lee Bell, Alex MacDonald and Jimmy Phillips, forwards Billy Kee and Dominic Knowles and defender Marcus Holness all began on the bench against the Gulls and will be hoping for recalls to the starting line-up.

Bury's on-loan forward Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro will miss the trip.

The striker, borrowed from Tranmere, has pulled a hamstring muscle and faces a couple of weeks on the sidelines, according to Shakers boss David Flitcroft.

A similar ailment is keeping out Ashley Grimes while Navid Nasseri, another young forward, has a thigh strain and missed the trip to Mansfield on Tuesday night.

The line-up which Flitcroft deployed against the Stags could be the one he sticks with here after he was effusive in his praise of the 4-1 thrashing.
