Duo back for Brewers

Shane Cansdell-Sherriff and Adam McGurk come back into the reckoning for Burton when Exeter visit the Pirelli Stadium.

Cansdell-Sherriff suffered a fractured cheekbone during the goalless draw at Mansfield on New Year's Day but he is back to bolster Albion's defensive options.

McGurk missed the 4-2 home defeat to Fleetwood last weekend through illness - the Brewers' first league loss in 11 games - but would have been in the squad for Tuesday night's postponed trip to Torquay.

Fellow forward Michael Symes (groin) should be fit for Saturday after a week with the medical staff at St George's Park.

Exeter midfielder Matt Oakley could be involved for the first time since October.

The 36-year-old was named on the bench in midweek following his recovery from ankle ligament damage he sustained against Plymouth on October 5. He could play some part against the Brewers.

Matt Grimes (ankle) came off the bench in the second half of Tuesday's goalless draw with Oxford and he is in contention to return to the starting XI, along with Alan Gow.

Midfielder Tommy Doherty left the club by mutual consent on Thursday.
