Burton are hoping that midfielder John McGrath will be able to recover from a stomach bug in time to play.Midfielder Jack Dyer is pushing for his first start since joining on loan from Aston Villa. [LNB]Gillingham have doubts over defender John Nutter, who picked up a thigh strain during the 3-1 win against Accrington last weekend. [LNB]Fellow defenders Tony Sinclair and Danny Jackman (both ankle) also remain doubtful for the game. [LNB][LNB]Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby: "It's nice to be back at home with five games to come [at the Pirelli] after such a poor away record.[LNB] [LNB][LNB] "Maybe the confidence from the next four or five home games and winning them will give us a boost. [LNB]"I've got to play a team that I think will get results but I don't have the squad to make changes, even though we've been poor away from home." [LNB]Gilllingham manager Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent: "We had Burton watched in midweek, and we know their manager has been switching the players around to find the right combination.[LNB] [LNB][LNB] "It's going to be a big game for both teams - they've got a lot of matches in hand and want to get out of the bottom two. [LNB]"They can go on a winning run after we've beaten them on Saturday, and they should be fine. [LNB]"We're expecting them to bring back big Darren Moore in defence to mark our big man (Adebayo Akinfenwa). I wouldn't like to get in between those two."
