Burton boss Gary Rowett has a few injury concerns ahead of Plymouth's visit.

Full-back Phil Edwards is very doubtful through illness while centre-back Marcus Holness and striker Billy Kee have also been affected by a bug this week.

Forward Adam McGurk has been nursing a thigh problem sustained during the warm-up prior to last weekend's goalless draw at York.

However, Rowett revealed that midfielder Robbie Weir (hamstring) has looked good in training this week after missing out against the Minstermen, while strikers Michael Symes and Gary Alexander are now both fully fit.

Plymouth look set to hand a debut to Enoch Showunmi at Burton.

The target-man, fresh from a loan spell at Devon rivals Torquay, was borrowed from Notts County last week and will be involved in the squad in place of Tope Obadeyi who returned to Bury at the end of his loan spell.

The Pilgrims have not kicked a ball since their 2-1 defeat to arch-rivals Exeter last Tuesday and Matt Parsons, who was forced off with a thigh injury in that match, looks set to be ruled out again.

Striker Lewis Alessandra is edging closer to a return from a hamstring injury but this match comes too soon for the 12-goal forward. Goalkeeper Luke McCormick is unlikely to feature again this season with a dislocated and fractured finger unless the Pilgrims make the play-offs.

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
