Burton Albion Vs Swindon Town, Sat 17 Sep 2011


Burton boss Paul Peschisolido expects to choose from an unchanged squad when Swindon take on his injury-hit side at the Pirelli Stadium.

As well as long-term casualties Nathan Stanton and Tom Parkes, the Brewers have midfielders Cleveland Taylor and Jacques Maghoma as well as striker Greg Pearson nursing injuries.

None of whom will be available against the in-form Robins, with Maghoma being the latest casualty having missed the 1-0 home victory over neighbours Crewe on Tuesday night.

"All the indications are that Jacques' injury is not serious but he is not going to be ready for the weekend," said Peschisolido.

"He jarred his ankle at Oxford last weekend and that has caused fluid and swelling."

Defenders Darren Moore and Danny Blanchett along with forwards Adi Yussuf and Billy Kee are among the options to Peschisolido should he wish to make changes.

Swindon will be without Oliver Risser and Lukas Magera.

Namibian midfielder Risser's ankle problem has seen him play just 16 minutes since August 27, while Czech striker Magera is expected to be ruled out action for another fortnight.

However, centre-back Aden Flint has a week's worth of training under his belt and could be included in the matchday squad.

Utility man Alessandro Cibocchi was handed a place on the bench against Crawley in midweek after recovering from a minor knock.

Abdul Said is a long-term casualty for Paolo Di Canio's men, who are in pursuit of their fourth consecutive league win at the Pirelli Stadium this weekend.
