Hereford could remain unchanged for the visit of Burton having secured a third successive home win in midweek against Aldershot.

The Bulls are currently in a rich vein of form at Edgar Street and will be targeting a healthy return from their double header at home to Burton and Northampton.

On Tuesday, manager John Trewick made two changes from the side that lost 3-1 at Shrewsbury last weekend - left-back Ryan Valentine coming in for Tyler Weir and Matt Done recalled in place of Craig King with Gavin McCallum moved up front.

And the plan worked as McCallum grabbed his fourth goal in four games to help the Bulls on their way to a 2-0 triumph.

Defender Ryan Green is hoping to prove his fitness in time to be considered for a place in Trewick's matchday 18 following his hernia operation, while midfielder Jamie Tolley needs a scan to assess the latest with his shin injury and will continue to play no part.

Burton have no new problems as they look to return to winning ways.

Captain Darren Stride missed the back-to-back defeats to Crewe and Morecambe with a groin injury but the defender has suffered a setback in his rehabilitation and is now nursing a calf problem.

Russell Penn limped off after just five minutes with a knee injury at home to Crewe a week ago. The midfielder missed the trip to Morecambe and he will remain on the sidelines.

He is also likely to sit out the Accrington match on Tuesday night but he has a chance of being in the squad when Rotherham visit the Pirelli Stadium next weekend.

Midfielder Michael Simpson is recovering from a stress fracture in his foot and is not expected to return until next month.
