Calvin Zola: Set to miss out again

Calvin Zola: Set to miss out again

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

Burton boss Gary Rowett will probably have an unchanged squad for the visit of the Pilgrims.

Calvin Zola is still struggling with a long-standing hamstring and hip problem that has seen him sit out the last four matches and the Congolese looks set to remain on the sidelines.

Fellow striker Billy Kee returned from a hamstring injury against Wycombe in midweek and got through the full 90 minutes unscathed.

Captain Zander Diamond and goalkeeper Stuart Tomlinson were dropped for that game on Tuesday night following the 7-1 hammering at Port Vale.

Rowett expects them both to respond in a positive manner but they may struggle to get back into the starting line-up on Saturday after their replacements Marcus Holness and Dean Lyness helped Albion to a clean sheet in a 2-0 victory over the Chairboys.

Should Rowett opt to make changes he also has defender Aaron Webster, midfielders Jimmy Phillips, Jack Dyer and Adam Drury and striker Matt Paterson to call on.

Argyle captain Conor Hourihane will miss Saturday's encounter.

The Irishman serves the final game of the two-match ban he received for picking up his 10th yellow card of the season against York.

Pilgrims boss John Sheridan will run the rule over on-loan Lee Cox ahead of kick off.

The midfielder, 22, has missed his side's last two games with the shoulder injury he sustained in the victory over Exeter on March 30 and is rated as doubtful.

Sheridan will also check on veteran midfielder Paul Wotton who was taken off in the second half of Saturday's 2-0 victory over Cheltenham, but could recover in time to play some part. Jamie Lowry and Warren Feeney remain sidelined.

Argyle have won four of their last five games and currently sit 18th in the League Two table, just three points above the relegation zone.
