NIGEL Clough may have to bring in a goalkeeper on an emergency loan after Brad Collins came off with an injury at Accrington on Saturday.

Collins was brought in to cover for Stephen Bywater who suffered a shoulder injury in the Carabao Cup victory over Aston Villa.

But the on loan keeper picked up a thigh problem in the 1-1 draw at Accrington that could mean that he joins Bywater on the sidelines.

Brewers manager Nigel Clough said: “The loan window is closed but we are still allowed to bring in an emergency loan as none of our keepers has any experience.

“We will have to see how Brad and Stephen are this week. If it’s only one game we might not bother but if it’s an extended period for both we will have to bring someone in.”

Harry Campbell came off the bench on Saturday just as he did against Aston Villa when he saved a penalty. He made sure the Brewers came away with a point at Accrington with a point blank save.

But he is short of first team experience and Clough will not want to be without options in the goalkeeping department for long.

Clough said: “Harry’s come on and made a great save but he’s still not even started a league game yet. We are glad we haven’t got a midweek game as that gives us a bit of time.”

David Templeton was another injury casualty on Saturday.

Clough said: “He fell awkwardly on his ankle. He has had a few problems with it so we will have to see how it is.”
