The Brewers go into Saturday's clash with Blackpool sitting second in the table on goal difference whilst Blackpool sit 18th.



The two sides have met just once which was earlier in the season.

BLACKPOOL 1-2 BURTON ALBION



DARIUS CHARLES is still out of contention and could be for another six weeks with a hamstring injury he sustained in training.

ZELI ISMAIL will be back training next week.

TOM NAYLOR picked up a knock in the last match but he should be fit for Blackpool.

MARK DUFFY also took a knock against Swindon, in the ribs off the ball but again, he should be fit.



Nigel Clough

"People look at them in the table and see they are low down but apart from Saturday’s defeat, they had three straight wins without conceding a goal."

“In those games, they beat Port Vale, Wigan and Peterborough.

"The latter two you would be expecting to finish in the top six, so we have to be up for the challenge."



Phil Edwards

"It was a tough game, Redshaw gave them the lead but we didn’t perform in the first half, we were poor.

"The second half we came out, Nasser scored two very good goals and won us the game.

"Hopefully we can do something like that again."



Brad Potts

Blackpool took midfielder Brad Potts off Carlisle United after an impressive season for the League Two side last time out.

Potts agreed a two-year deal at Bloomfield Road, with the option of a further 12 months.

Capped by England Under-19s, Potts bagged eight goals in 43 games for The Cumbrians in 2014/15 and was nominated for the League Two Player of the Month award in November.

Born in Hewham, the youngster departed Brunton Park with 118 appearances to his name after breaking into the first team in 2012.

The midfielder got off the mark in tangerine with the winner at Scunthorpe United in September.



NASSER EL KHAYATI is starting to pull away at the top of the goal scoring list as he is now on 8 for the season. STUART BEAVON is putting in all the hard work to give others the scroing opportunity, he is on 5 goals.

MARK CULLEN is Blackpool's leading goalscorer so far this season as he has racked up seve goals, all in the league. JACK REDSHAW isn't far behind as he has five goals, again all of these have come in the league.
