Burton manager Paul Peschisolido is weighing up whether he needs to sign a left-back on an emergency loan deal.
Paul Boertien faces a lengthy lay-off after suffering a recurrence of the calf injury that kept him out earlier this season, while Aaron Webster also has a similar injury and a dead leg.
"It is still debatable whether Aaron will be fit enough to play against Bradford on Saturday, so I have given some thought to bringing in someone as cover," said Peschisolido.
"I think it is unlikely to happen, but I haven't ruled out the idea just yet.
"The difficulty is that we might need someone for only one game and it is not always easy to get the right player - but it is a possibility."
