BEN Garratt is set to make his Burton Albion debut tomorrow in the Trophy with first choice keeper Kieran O’Hara on international duty.

The Brewers take on Mansfield in the final group game looking to make the last 32 of the competition (kick off 7.45pm).

Nigel Clough will be without his three international players with Liam Boyce and Nathan Broadhead also called up.

He said: “Losing the international boys is a blow so Ben Garratt will get his first start for us and everyone else who is fit will be involved.

“Ben has good experience and we were very fortunate to find him out of contract and without a club and that meant we were able to get him in.

“He has impressed us so far and we will get to see him in a match tomorrow.”

Joe Sbarra is also in line for a key role.

Clough said: “Joe had a good 20 minutes on Saturday and he will start tomorrow and that will be good game time for him. We are looking for him to kick on and create something for us.

"Everybody we have available will probably have to play. With Richard Nartey and Reece Hutchinson not being right and Lloyd Dyer having an ankle injury we will be down to the bare bones.

“We want to get through to the last 32. There’s no reason at all we shouldn’t have a good run in the Trophy and any competition where you end up at Wembley is a great opportunity.“
