Burton boss Nigel Clough could make changes in attack for Huddersfield clash

Burton boss Nigel Clough has some choices to make up front ahead of his side's game against Huddersfield at the Pirelli Stadium.

Clough was disappointed with the 2-1 defeat at Brentford on Saturday and could make changes in attack as they look to return to winning ways.

Chris O'Grady and Jamie Ward both started at Brentford but were replaced by Will Miller and Marcus Harness, both of whom are pushing for starting places.

Clough's only likely absentee is another striker, Stuart Beavon, who has missed the last three games with a dead leg.

Huddersfield head coach David Wagner is not expected to make any unforced changes as his side bid for back-to-back league wins for the first time since early October.

Wagner has no major new issues following Saturday's home win against Bristol City, but is still without winger Sean Scannell (leg) and centre-half Mark Hudson (hamstring).

Forward Joe Lolley remains a long-term absentee due to the foot injury that has kept him out since mid-August.

Defender Martin Cranie, plus midfielders Philip Billing and Jack Payne are pushing for recalls.
