NIGEL Clough says that he squad is in good shape heading into the last 16 games of the League One season.

There are no major injury concerns for Albion although at least two players will miss Saturday’s trip to Wimbledon.

John Brayford is suspended after picking a red card against Oxford and Ben Fox has a hamstring niggle.

The Brewers manager said: “Ben is still struggling with his tight hamstring that he picked up in training last weekend.

“Josh Clarke got a knock on his ankle in training yesterday and we will have to see how he is. Everybody else should be OK.”

New on-loan signing Alex Bradley will come into the squad.

Clough said: “He has done very well in training. Since he has come in he has tried hard, run around, smiled and been brilliant. It’s a bit like Jake Hesketh when he came in, he’s the same sort of character. He can play central or wide midfield and we will do our best to get him on the pitch.

“We have 16 games to go and we have a fit squad. They might get little knocks but I don’t see players like Lucas Akins missing many games between now and the end of the season. Colin Daniel has already played 29 games this season and is fit and strong. Liam Boyce is looking fit and strong. Scotty Fraser is getting stronger, Stephen Quin has been brilliant since he came in. We are happy in all areas.

“You can never tell what can happen with injuries but from a starting position we are in in good shape.”
