NIGEL Clough will have a full squad to choose from as the Brewers travel to Charlton tomorrow (kick off 7.45pm).

The Brewers recorded an impressive 2-1 win at Coventry on Friday night and now face an equally tough trip to promotion-chasing Charlton.

But Clough’s men are confident and came away from the Ricoh Arena without picking up any injuries.

The manager said: “I think everyone is ready to go again. I was speaking to Nick Fenton (Physio) and I don’t think he has ever known getting to the second week in March and having a squad where everyone is fully fit.”

Tiredness ay be the only factor therefore in team selection.

“We will assess them on Tuesday morning and see if anyone is feeling it. There might be one or two changes to cater for Charlton but not too many.”

The Brewers players will also be benefiting from an extra day’s rest.

Clough said:  “We have made no secret of the fact that we like playing Friday nights, whether it’s home or away. If you get a positive result, you can sit and watch everyone sweat on Saturday afternoon when we have three points in the bag.

“Coventry and Charlton away are as tough as you will get together at any time during the season so it’s lovely to start with three points.”
