Bristol Rovers are sweating over the fitness of Mustapha Carayol.

Winger Carayol has been suffering with a hamstring problem of late, missing the 3-0 defeat at Crewe on Easter Monday, and he will be assessed ahead of kick-off at the Memorial Stadium.

Otherwise, Rovers manager Mark McGhee has no new injury or suspensions worries for the game.

Jim Paterson also missed the loss at Crewe after he was substituted during the 2-2 draw against Gillingham with breathing difficulties - but the defender is expected to return to the matchday squad this weekend.

Centre-back Adam Virgo is the only long-term absentee for Rovers with a knee ligament problem that is likely to keep the former Brighton man out until the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Jack Dyer could come back into contention when Burton travel to Bristol Rovers for the first time ever.

Dyer missed the thrilling 3-2 home win over Morecambe on Monday which guaranteed Albion's League Two status for another season. The midfielder was ruled out after aggravating a knee injury in Friday's 1-1 draw away to Dagenham.

Caretaker boss Gary Rowett is optimistic about Dyer's chances of returning to action at the Memorial Ground.

"Jack already had a sore knee from a previous game and took another bang on it at Dagenham so leaving him out against Morecambe was more a case of giving the injury time to settle down and hopefully the rest he's had will have done the trick," said Rowett. "We've got a couple of training sessions before the Bristol game to assess Jack. If he comes through without a problem, he'll definitely be challenging for a place this weekend."

Rowett is also hoping full-back Aaron Webster recovers from a knock to the thigh sustained in the Morecambe game.

Young striker Adi Yussuf has put himself in contention for a recall to the squad after scoring four times for the reserves on Tuesday afternoon.
