Big injury worries for Burton Albion ahead of SWFC game

Recommended Posts

NIGEL Clough is facing a growing injury list for tomorrow’s trip to Sheffield Wednesday.
 

The hard earned point at Bristol City has added to the manager’s list of doubts.

 

He said: “We picked up a couple of knocks on Saturday. Ben Turner has a sore neck and Marvin Sordell has a sore ankle. There are one or two other little things as well.

 

“Michael Kightly we don’t think will make it tomorrow. Lucas Akins remains a doubt as well.”

 

The good news is that defender Damien McCrory should be back in contention after recovering from a hamstring problem.

 

Clough said: “Damien missed the Birmingham Senior Cup last week through illness so he hasn’t played for four or five weeks now but he is back available.”

 

John Brayford returned to the starting line up at Bristol but Clough doesn’t know if he can now play at Sheffield as well.

 

Clough said: “When they have played Saturday you hope to patch them up and get them back out there. John’s knee is sore after his first full game for a while. So we need to keep an eye on him as well.”

That's a shame if some of his regulars aren't available he might end up playing the yoofs.

Sordell scored 3 against us for Charlton once I believe.

Fringe players getting a chance, midweek match at home, supposed nailed on victory. I hate these games.

Whatever team they put out we should be beating them tonight if we play like we did on Saturday.

If they are genuine doubts, he will probably not risk them as they will consider the match at home v Forest on Saturday to be far bigger.

 

Better chance of winning, more important in terms of the context of the league plus local rivalry.

I'm sure they'll put up more of a fight than Norwich, patched up or not. We need to be up for it.

Cliché time but first goal is all important tonight.

We get it, the floodgates will open. 

They get it, it'll be a grind.

Not expecting an easy game tonight, so it would help if John Brayford played.
