Richard Jackson looks likely to miss out for Burton when Port Vale visit the Pirelli Stadium.

The defender has suffered a calf injury after overcoming his groin problems and seems destined for another spell on the sidelines.

Fellow defenders Darren Stride and Paul Boertien remain out with groin and thigh injuries respectively, with the former set to see a specialist about his problem.

Winger Marc Goodfellow has joined Blue Square Premier outfit Kidderminster on loan until the end of the season, while Leicester defender Tom Parkes has extended his stay with Paul Peschisolido`s side for the same length of time.

Nine-goal striker Greg Pearson will be hoping for a recall after having to settle for a substitute role in the last two matches.

Veteran striker Geoff Horsfield is included in the Port Vale squad.

The much-travelled frontman has shaken off a hamstring injury and could make his first appearance since early December.

Midfielder Doug Loft needs a late fitness check on a hamstring problem and striker Lewis Haldane serves a one-match ban for his red card at Hereford last week.

If Vale avoid defeat at the Pirelli Stadium they will extend their unbeaten run on the road to nine league games - their best record for more than 40 years.

Vale have not lost on their travels since manager Micky Adams placed his entire squad on the transfer list following the 3-1 defeat at Notts County in September.
