Accrington v Burton preview

Adam McGurk: Set to return
Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Accrington Stanley and Burton Albion at The Crown Ground.
Depleted Accrington could again be without as many as four of their more senior players this weekend.
Striker Danny Webber completes his three-match suspension, full-back Nicky Hunt and goalkeeper Ian Dunbavin (both knee) are not expected to be back in action for at least another month while defender Laurence Wilson is also very doubtful with a groin strain.
On-loan stopper Marcus Bettinelli arrived from Fulham on Wednesday and made his debut in the 2-0 Capital One Cup defeat against Cardiff, a game which also featured 16-year-old Connor Mahoney and both may be involved again.
Prior to the Bluebirds clash, manager James Beattie suggested a lack of numbers for the side bottom of League Two could force him to play himself yet he resisted the urge to do so on Wednesday.
Albion boss Gary Rowett could make changes to his side following their midweek exploits in the Capital One Cup.
The Brewers took Premier League club Fulham all the way to penalties in their second-round tie on Tuesday night, so there might be a few drained legs among Rowett's ranks.
Adam McGurk is likely to return after a sore knee while fellow striker Michael Symes, whose header put Burton 2-1 in front in extra time against the Cottagers, and midfielder Jimmy Phillips could come into contention for starting roles after impressing from the bench in midweek.
Midfielder Alex McDonald (calf) is out, though, while striker Billy Kee (thigh) and defender Zander Diamond (foot) are both close to their comebacks.
