Accrington will be without striker Michael Symes for the home game against Burton.

Symes was sent off in the second half of Saturday's defeat to League Two leaders Rochdale following an off-the-ball clash with Jason Taylor and serves a three-match ban.

Bobby Grant is expected to come into the starting line-up in the absence of Symes, having made his return from a hamstring injury as a substitute against Dale.

Goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis will be hoping to keep his place in the side at the expense of Ian Dunbavin, who was on the bench at the weekend after serving a one-game ban.

Leam Richardson (groin) and Alan Burton (ankle) are both unavailable as Stanley look to bounce back from Saturday's defeat in which they surrendered a two-goal lead to lose 4-2.

Burton manager Paul Peschisolido is expected to choose from an unchanged squad.

Peschisolido has no new injury or suspension concerns following Saturday's draw home draw with Chesterfield.

Jacques Maghoma will be struggling for full match fitness in time after sustaining a knee injury in the recent defeat to Cheltenham, but could make a surprise return to the bench.

Shaun Kelly, a recent signing from Chester, is hoping to play some part after being named among the substitutes on Saturday, while Aaron Webster and Greg Pearson, second-half replacements against Chesterfield, could be handed bigger roles, especially the latter who snatched a stoppage-time equaliser.

Albion are assured of another season in League Two, but have won only two of their last seven league matches.
