THE Brewers are hoping that defender Damien McCrory and striker Stuart Beavon will be fit to face Gillingham on Saturday.
McCrory returned to the starting line-up at Colchester but still has hamstring concerns whilst Beavon has been carrying a knee injury.
Brewers boss Nigel Clough said: “Damien hasn’t trained this week, which is just precautionary.
“It was a risk playing Damien as it was only a couple of weeks after his hamstring problem, which is why we were a little bit cautious in bringing him off the first chance we got.
“But he’s important, he’s our first choice left back.
“With Damien and Stuart Beavon, we had an opportunity to give them a breather at Colchester and we are going to take that as they are very important players. Stuart has been carrying his knee problems for the last few weeks and we have had to manage that.”
Callum Reilly is also carrying an injury.
Clough said: “Callum has a slight thigh strain and has not trained this week.Anyone who feels anything at all at this stage comes out of training. We have already lost two players for the season with Tom Flanagan and Mason Bennett and don’t want to risk anyone else.”
