    Burton will be without midfielder Luke Murphy as he can not play against his parent club.

    Goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin is a doubt with the shoulder injury that forced him off in the win over Birmingham, so Stephen Bywater is on standby.

    Leeds United midfielder Ronaldo Vieira could feature after missing the last two games through illness.

    Full-back Charlie Taylor is pushing for a recall but centre-back Liam Cooper sits out the fifth of his six-game ban.
