No new worries for Burton

Burton have no new problems as they prepare to host Wigan in the Capital One Cup.

Left-back Damien McCrory and midfielders Jimmy Phillips and Lee Bell all missed out with knee injuries as Albion got their League Two campaign underway with an away win at Oxford.

Billy Kee could be pushing for a start after returning from his knee problem as a late substitute on Saturday. The striker is a short of fitness having spent most of the summer recovering from the injury he sustained when he hit an advertising board at Southend during the second leg of the play-off semi-final.

Shane Cansdell-Sherriff, Adam McGurk and Matthew Palmer are among those players who could come in should manager Gary Rowett wish to make any changes to his starting line-up.

Wigan manager Uwe Rosler has revealed he will rotate certain members of his squad for their trip.

Midfielders Don Cowie, James McArthur, Shaun Maloney and loanee Emyr Huws are all likely to be rested as they continue to build-up their match fitness.

Honduras international Roger Espinoza is expected to return from a back spasm whilst winger Callum McManaman could feature after scoring in Saturday's 2-2 draw at home to Reading.

New signing James Tavernier will also be hoping to be involved from the start after coming on as a late second-half substitute against the Royals.
