DAVID Templeton is the major injury doubt as the Brewers prepare for promotion-chasing Barnsley on Saturday (kick off 3pm).

A couple of players have had minor illnesses since the Brewers beat Accrington 5-2 but the rest of the squad is fit and ready to go after enjoying a short break before returning to training on Monday.

Clough said: “With David it was the challenge he made against Accrington. There was a rebound when Ben Fox went through and he went in with their lad in the six-yard box and he tweaked his knee. He carried on and finished the game, but his knee has been quite sore since.

“We have had a couple of illnesses  as well– Stephen Quinn has been off but should be OK.

“We have had relatively few injuries this season and no real long terms ones and we hope that the players will get stronger each season, especially the lads who have come down from Scotland and who are getting used to the pace and intensity. And that’s the same for the young players.”

Clough also hopes that the two-week break between games will have benefited his players.

He said: “It’s good to be back in action after the enforced break brought on by the postponement of the Sunderland game. The lads had a few days off in the first week, which was a mental re-charging more than anything physical and came in on Monday morning absolutely flying.

“We also had a good practice match on Tuesday and those who needed it played 80 minutes.”
