Bolder: Ruled out for Brewers

Bolder: Ruled out for Brewers

Team news ahead of Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy first round-tie between Burton Albion and Sheffield United at Pirelli Stadium (7.30pm).

Burton boss Paul Peschisolido goes up against his former club without Adam Bolder.

Bolder collected his fifth yellow card in six matches during the 2-1 league defeat at Accrington on Saturday and the midfielder will serve a one-match suspension, so Jimmy Phillips could come into the starting XI.

Peschisolido, who played for the Blades between 2001 and 2004, is expected to give a full debut to new signing Billy Kee.

Kee joined Albion on Friday and made his first appearance for the club as a second-half substitute against Accrington the following day.

Defenders Darren Moore and Danny Blanchett could also get run-outs if Peschisolido wishes to makes further changes.

Sheffield United captain Nick Montgomery will miss the clash.

Montgomery was a doubt before the Yeovil game with a stomach bug but made the starting line-up only to be stretched off early in the second half of the 1-0 win following a clash with Glovers' skipper Paul Wotton.

He injured his ankle in the collision and could face up to a month on the sidelines.

Fellow midfielder Lee Williamson missed the victory with a groin strain sustained in the Carling Cup defeat to Everton and, even if he proves his fitness, may struggle to come back in as his replacement Chris Porter netted the winner on Saturday.

The Blades' relegation to the third tier means they will be playing in this competition for the first time in over 20 years.
