Rochdale pair Ollie Lancashire and Peter Cavanagh are hoping to return to action.

Both players were unused substitutes in Saturday's win against Morecambe. Centre-half Lancashire had missed the previous three matches due to a hamstring injury and midfielder Cavanagh had been sidelined for four games with a similar problem.

Boss Keith Hill has no new injury or suspension worries as his side bid for a third straight league win that could propel them back into an automatic promotion place.

Midfielder Peter Vincenti and striker George Donnelly are among those pushing for recalls, while George Porter is hoping to make his first appearance since signing from Burnley.

Burton boss Gary Rowett could freshen things up ahead of the trip to fellow promotion hopefuls Rochdale.

Forward Billy Kee came off the bench to score his 10th goal of the season in the 1-1 draw with Dagenham at the weekend and he is vying for a return to Albion's attacking line along with Dominic Knowles.

Michael Symes (knee) is definitely out but Rowett has no new injury or suspension worries.

The Brewers sit sixth in the Sky Bet League Two table but victory at Spotland would see them leapfrog their opponents, who are currently in fourth place.
