Burton winger Jimmy Phillips is expected to miss the remainder of the month with a knee injury.

Burton winger Jimmy Phillips is expected to miss the remainder of the month with a knee injury.

The 20-year-old, signed in the summer following his release by Stoke, sustained the problem in the closing stages of Albion's 2-0 home win over Barnet last weekend.

Phillips is set for a scan to determine the extent of the damage, but Brewers boss Paul Peschisolido thinks he will be without the player for at least a fortnight.

"Jimmy has got a knee injury. We are still assessing it and we are waiting for the swelling to go down so that he can have a scan," said Peschisolido.

"After that we will know more about the extent of the injury, but I would strongly doubt that he will be fit for the next couple of weeks. Fingers crossed that is the best-case scenario."
