Burton

Last updated: Sun 05 January 2020 07:39
In Brief

Edged out Bolton in a seven-goal thriller. John O'Toole returns after completing a four-match ban. Kieran Wallace unlikely. Jake Buxton and Richard Nartey doubtful.

Looking Back

Burton are coming from a thrilling win at Bolton, as they managed to edge out the Trotters in a seven-goal thriller.

The Brewers were in poor form going into the festive schedule, but are in a fine mood now, having won three of their last four.

Looking Ahead

John O'Toole returns after missing the last four matches with a suspension.

Jake Buxton and Richard Nartey are both doubtful with minor issues, so O'Toole could start if one of them misses out.

Kieran Wallace missed the previous game with a virus and is set to remain unavailable.

Points of Interest

After scoring only four goals in their opening eight league home games of the season, Burton have netted seven times in their last two.

Northampton Town

Last updated: Sun 05 January 2020 09:45
In Brief

Alan McCormack is a major doubt for the trip to Burton Albion in the cup; Shaun McWilliams and Harry Smith sidelined.

Looking Back

Northampton Town snatched a dramatic injury-time winner to beat bottom-of-the-table Stevenage 1-0 at the Sixfields Stadium.

Manager Keith Curle made just the one change to his starting line-up on New Year's Day with Scott Pollock handed a rare start.

He was preferred to Andy Williams, who dropped to the bench as Curle stuck with the same 18-man squad.

Looking Ahead

Curle has no new injury concerns ahead of the trip to the Pirelli Stadium and could be tempted to make changes.

Key man Alan McCormack has returned to training following a knock but is unlikely to be risked.

Shaun McWilliams and Harry Smith are expected to be sidelined for at least two months after suffering knee and ankle injuries respectively.

Points of Interest

The two sides can't be separated over the last seven meetings, each winning three and drawing one.
