Burton boss Paul Peschisolido must decide whether to make changes for the trip to Northampton following the home defeat to Rotherham.

Peschisolido was at a loss to explain his side`s 4-2 loss on Saturday.

The Canadian could shuffle his pack or, as he did following the recent disappointing performance in the defeat at Torquay, name the same starting XI and give those players a chance to redeem themselves.

Should Peschisolido alter things, he has options all over the pitch. Scott Malone could return from a thigh injury, while fellow defenders Darren Moore and Ryan Austin are available.

Jimmy Phillips and Luke Young could compete for a midfield place and Sam Winnall and Richard Walker are options in attack as Calvin Zola remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Northampton will be without left-back Liam Davis.

The former Coventry man came off at half-time at Southend on Saturday with an Achilles injury which will keep him out for around a week, so veteran Marcus Hall will start.

On-loan Watford midfielder Josh Walker missed the club's sixth straight draw at Roots Hall with a hamstring injury and has had treatment back at Vicarage Road.

He remains a doubt while central defender Dean Beckwith is struggling with the flu. Fellow defender Craig Hinton will have an injection this week in a long-standing knee injury and he will be out for around a month.

Goalkeeper Chris Dunn makes his 100th appearance for the Cobblers but former Albion striker Shaun Harrad misses out as he serves the third and final game of his suspension.

Another draw would be a new club record.
