Aldershot boss Kevin Dillon is likely to name an unchanged side for his squad's home clash with Burton on Saturday.

The Shots are fresh from back-to-back wins that have reignited their play-off push in League Two, with Dillon having the luxury of no new injury or suspension worries for the Albion encounter.

Goalkeeper Stephen Henderson will again feature between the sticks having secured a second month on loan from Bristol City earlier this week, however striker Marlon Jackson - who is also on loan from the Robins - is likely to again have to settle for a place on the bench.

Fellow striker Marvin Morgan is rated as doubtful to even make the bench as he steps up his recovery from a back problem, with midfielder John Halls (groin) still sidelined.

Defender Dave Winfield should however be fine to start his second game in a week having shaken off a bout of food poisoning.

On-loan winger Cleveland Taylor is likely to be absent from the Burton squad.

Taylor, on loan from Brentford, suffered a foot injury against Rotherham and while an X-ray did not reveal any bone fracture, he has been unable to train so far this week.

Midfielder John McGrath suffered a slight thigh strain against the Millers last weekend but he is expected to be fit.

Aaron Webster is available again after a one-match suspension but fellow defenders Richard Jackson and Darren Stride are likely to remain out with calf injuries.

Boss Paul Peschisolido is already planning ahead for a second season in the Football League and the Canadian has hinted that he may tinker with formations in the remaining 13 matches.

"There are things we can do in what remains of this season that will help us with regards to next season," said Peschisolido. "That will involve a little bit of experimentation in terms of players and formations, but it won't be wholesale stuff because I don't want it to be done at the expense of results as we want to finish in the top-half of the table this season."
