Fletcher: Considering strike action

Fletcher: Considering strike action

Team news ahead of Saturday's League Two clash between Burton Albion and Plymouth Argyle at the Pirelli Stadium.

Adam Bolder comes back into the reckoning for Burton.

Midfielder Bolder missed the Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Sheffield United in midweek through suspension after collecting his fifth yellow card of the season during the league defeat at Accrington.

Albion boss Paul Peschisolido made four changes against his former club on Tuesday night. Jack Dyer made his first appearance of the campaign in place of Bolder, while Jimmy Phillips was preferred to Chris Palmer on the left wing.

Summer signing Danny Blanchett made his full debut at left-back against the Blades and veteran centre-half Darren Moore was handed his first start of the campaign.

Bolder and Palmer will hope to get straight back into the team along with Aaron Webster and Tony James.

Plymouth boss Peter Reid remains uncertain about the side he will be able to put out.

Argyle have yet to receive their August wages and several senior players, including Carl Fletcher and Romain Larrieu, have spoken about the possibility of going on strike.

Reid is supportive of the strike but is determined to field a side in any case, with a decision set to be made on Saturday morning.

He said: "Whatever happens, I'll put a team out at Burton. But I wouldn't hold anything against these players if they decided they weren't in the right frame of mind to play."

Conor Hourihane and Warren Feeney will not be selected regardless of a strike as they are on international duty with Northern Ireland Under 21s and the senior side respectively.

But Reid should be able to call on new loan recruits Simon King and Jamie Griffiths, who both joined on Wednesday.
