Accrington manager John Coleman has no new injuries or suspension concerns ahead of his side's home clash against Burton.

Stanley ran out 2-0 winners against Bradford on Saturday, and Coleman is likely to keep faith with the same starting XI.

John Miles will keep his place on the wing ahead of Chris Turner and Sean McConville after scoring a brace at the weekend.

Fellow midfield man Luke Joyce came through the full 90 minutes unscathed against the Bantams following a dead leg which had seen him miss the game against Lincoln in midweek and should retain his place.

Left-back Leam Richardson, who is yet to feature this season, is still recovering from a groin injury and will remain sidelined.

The victory over Bradford was Stanley's first win in their last four games and saw them jump into eighth place in the League Two table, just two points and one place outside the play-offs.

Aaron Webster is suspended for Burton`s trip.

The defender was sent off in injury-time in Albion`s thrilling 4-3 win against Hereford on Saturday for two bookable offences and must serve a one-match ban.

Paul Boertien, who has recently returned from a dead leg, will come back into the starting XI at full-back after having to settle for a place on the bench at Edgar Street.

Boss Paul Peschisolido described his side`s defending against the Bulls as "shambolic", but with captain Darren Stride nursing a calf problem the Canadian looks unable to make any more changes at the back.

He could shake things up elsewhere with winger Keith Gilroy and forward Richard Walker pushing for recalls.

Russell Penn has missed the last two matches with a knee injury and will probably remain on the sidelines, although the midfielder has a chance of being in the squad when Rotherham visit the Pirelli Stadium at the weekend.
