John Brayford and Kyle McFadzean missing for Burton's clash with Fulham

Burton will be without defensive duo John Brayford and Kyle McFadzean for Wednesday's clash with Fulham.

Brayford suffered ligament damage in Saturday's win at QPR and will be sidelined for six weeks while McFadzean, who sat out the trip to Loftus Road, will remain in the treatment room for two more weeks.

Defender Tom Naylor is fit after sitting out at the weekend with a knock.

Saturday's victory was Burton's first in five games during 2017 but they have not recorded successive victories all season.

Floyd Ayite is pushing for a return to the Fulham line-up after his run-out as a late substitute in Sunday's FA Cup thrashing of Hull.

Ayite scored four goals in as many games before leaving to play in the African Nations Cup for Togo.

Thanos Petsos is also in line for a start with the loan signing from Werder Bremen having made his debut as a replacement against the Tigers at the weekend.

Manager Slavisa Jovanovic has no new selection worries ahead of the game, though back-up striker Matt Smith left the club for QPR on deadline day.
