Burton Albion V Morecambe at Pirelli Stadium : Match Preview

Burton Albion V Morecambe - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Brewers braced for Shrimps test

Rory Delap remains the only player unavailable for Burton as they prepare to host Morecambe.


Delap has been struggling with an ongoing hamstring problem for several weeks and is set for a prolonged absence after recently suffering a setback in his recovery. The former Derby and Stoke midfielder has not featured for Albion since a 2-0 home defeat to Oxford on September 7.


Otherwise manager Gary Rowett has a full squad to select from and plenty of options should he wish to make any changes to his staring line up.


The likes of Zander Diamond, Lee Bell, Alex MacDonald, Dominic Knowles, Jack Dyer and Michael Symes are all vying for recalls.


Morecambe welcome back captain Mark Hughes as they bid to end a three-game winless streak.


The Shrimps skipper served a one-game suspension as Peter Murphy's last-gasp winner gave Accrington a 2-1 derby victory last weekend and consigned Jim Bentley's men to their second straight loss.


Last season's top scorer Jack Redshaw (hip) and defender Chris McCready (ankle) are both back in training with the former's much-anticipated return edging ever closer.


McCready returned to training this week and the only player who definitely will not be available to Bentley is defender Chris Doyle, who is still missing due to a knee injury. He may not play again before Christmas.
