DARREN Bent and Lloyd Dyer are Nigel Clough’s biggest injury worries going into tomorrow’s game at Aston Villa.
Bent picked up a knock on his debut at home to Reading on Tuesday, whilst Dyer could only make the bench after a back problem picked up in training.
Brewers manager Nigel Clough said: “Darren took a bit of knock when he went in on the goalkeeper. Lucas Akins flicked it on and he made a challenge and took a whack on the side where he has had hamstring problems so we will have to see how he is.
“Lloyd’s back stiffened up and he couldn’t train on Monday. He wasn’t quite right to put out there on Tuesday and you have to be careful with backs as they can seize up again very quickly but we are hoping he will be OK.
“Apart from that we have a few niggles, Kyle McFadzean has an ankle problem he is carrying, but everyone should be OK.”
New signing Jacob Davenport will be available for selection. The 19-year-old midfielder arrived on loan from Manchester City on deadline day and had his first training session today.
“He will be in the squad,” said Clough.
