KIERAN Wallace and Nathan Broadhead are both likely to miss Saturday’s home game against Accrington (kick off 3pm).
The Brewers had the weekend off on Saturday giving most of the squad a chance to rest after a gruelling period of games, but Broadhead and Wallace may still need more time.
Albion manager Nigel Clough said: “Nathan is a doubt having gone back to Everton with his hamstring injury. He has had treatment the last week or so and they have all his measurements from the summer so we agreed it was good idea for him to go back and we are awaiting a report to tell us if he will be ready or not for Saturday.
“Kieran bumped into Liam Boyce in the warm-up on Boxing Day and they clashed heads and he had a few stitches. Since then, after training he gets a bit of a headache so we are being overly cautious and sending him to check out everything we can. We are always very cautious with head injuries and Kieran’s welfare comes first. When he feels 100 per cent he will be involved.”
Some members of the quad who needed game time got on the pitch last night in the Birmingham Senior Cup.
Clough said: “It was important to get a few of them on the pitch – David Templeton got 69 minutes and Colin Daniel had a run around up front and scored two good goals. Joe Sbarra got more game time and Jevan Anderson came back after four weeks out with a thigh injury.
“A lot of the lads were absolutely dead on their feet after the MK Dons game, so they needed the break. They have had a few days off, they were back in training this week and the quality has been good and everyone has been lifted by the new players.”
Nigel Clough has also confirmed that two separate bids for Liam Boyce have been turned down by the Brewers.
He said: “There is still interest in Liam Boyce and we have had two bids which have been rejected.”
