Robbie Weir will return from suspension for the Brewers.

Weir has been sorely missed during his enforced two-match absence, with the Brewers drawing 3-3 at struggling Accrington before being hammered 7-1 by fellow automatic promotion contenders Port Vale.

The midfielder is likely to be restored to the starting line-up by manager Gary Rowett as he looks for his team to return to winning ways following four games without a victory.

With Michael Symes continuing to play despite a groin niggle, Rowett will be hoping for positive news on fellow strikers Calvin Zola and Billy Kee.

Zola is still struggling with a long-standing hamstring and hip problem and has sat out the last three matches, while Kee missed Friday night's thrashing at Vale Park with a hamstring injury sustained at Accrington.

Wycombe are without the suspended Stuart Lewis.

The midfielder picked up a 10th booking of the campaign at the weekend as Wanderers beat Oxford to record back-to-back one-goal away victories.

Winning a third against promotion-chasing Burton will be a tall order, but Gareth Ainsworth is expected to have Matt McClure and Dean Morgan available following hamstring injuries.

McClure has been absent since the 1-0 defeat to Accrington on Good Friday while Morgan has not featured since the Chairboys lost at Bradford on March 19.

Wycombe lie in 15th position in the table and need a point to mathematically guarantee their survival, while a third consecutive win would leave them just five points off a play-off place with four games to play.
