Injury problems mount for Burton ahead of Bristol City clash

Burton have concerns over Damien McCrory and Hope Akpan ahead of their home game with Bristol City.

McCrory was forced off with a knee injury in Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat to Brentford, his first start for the Brewers since August.

Akpan is struggling with an ankle injury sustained in training last weekend and will be assessed before the Sky Bet Championship clash.

Ben Turner and John Brayford are likely to be absent again, but Martin Samuelsen is expected to have fully recovered from the illness which forced him off during the opening hour against Brentford.

Bristol City must reorganise their defence following their midweek setback at Preston.

Centre-half Aden Flint was sent off in the final seconds of that 2-1 defeat and starts a three-game ban.

Left-back Joe Bryan begins a two-match suspension after picking up a 10th yellow card of the season.

So City are hoping Nathan Baker recovers from the groin injury which has ruled him out for the last two games, while Jens Hegeler (knee) and Milan Djuric (groin) stepped up their fitness by playing for the under-23s this week.
