Reckford back in the reckoning

Jamie Reckord could return to the Plymouth side when they host Burton on Saturday.

The on-loan Wolves left-back returned to the matchday squad for the 1-1 draw with Torquay on Tuesday night after recovering from illness and could reclaim a starting berth after Durrell Berry played out of position against the Gulls.

Manager John Sheridan has no fresh injury worries as they look to close the gap on the Brewers to four points and extend their unbeaten run to nine games.

Their midweek draw at Plainmoor saw Reuben Reid net his fifth goal in three games and he will start upfront once more for the in-form Pilgrims.

Jimmy Phillips comes back into the reckoning for Burton.

Phillips served a one-match suspension in midweek as Albion overcame Mansfield 1-0 at the Pirelli Stadium. The winger is added to manager Gary Rowett's squad in Devon along with new loan signing Benji Siegrist.

Aston Villa goalkeeper Siegrist will provide competition for Dean Lyness, who has kept clean sheets in each of his last two games since Jordan Pickford was recalled from his loan by Sunderland.

Veteran defender Rory Delap has resumed training after almost three months out with a hamstring injury but Saturday will come too soon for the 37-year-old, while striker Michael Symes (groin) will also remain on the sidelines.
