Miller: In red-hot form

Team news ahead of Tuesday night's League Two clash between Burton Albion and Crewe Alexandra at the Pirelli Stadium.

Crewe boss Dario Gradi is likely to name the same side that beat Barnet 3-1 on Saturday as they look to win their fourth game in succession.

That means Shaun Miller, scorer of six goals already this season, and Ajay Leitch-Smith continuing in attack.

Fellow forward Byron Moore returned at the weekend from the hamstring strain that had sidelined him since August. He is fit to play his second game in four days after suffering no reaction.

Rookie striker Nick Powell was not involved despite being available following his three-match suspension but could be named on the substitutes' bench for Tuesday's game.

Defender David Artell will again miss out because of his troublesome hamstring injury.

Manager Paul Peschisolido will pick from an unchanged squad when Burton host neighbours Crewe.

Albion were unchanged from the 2-1 home win over Plymouth as they came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Oxford on Saturday.

Albion manager Paul Peschisolido has some players nursing bumps and bruises but could name the same starting XI for the third straight game.

The Canadian was able to add Billy Kee to the bench at the Kassam Stadium after the striker recovered from a bang on the head sustained while captaining the Northern Ireland Under-21s in Serbia last week.

Cleveland Taylor remains sidelined by an ankle injury but the winger is closing in on a return.

Peschisolido said: "Cleveland's injury has taken some time to settle down and he has been out for a fair few weeks now, but I expect him to be out for probably another week or so."
