Gary Rowett: In need of defensive reinforcements

Gary Rowett: In need of defensive reinforcements

The man in question is a left-sided centre-half that Rowett watched in a training game on Monday.

He hopes a deal can be pushed through quickly, with Burton in need of reinforcements.

With Rory Delap nursing a hamstring complaint and Ian Sharps and Marcus Holness suspended, Rowett is eager to get bodies on board ahead of Saturday's home date with Scunthorpe United.

He told the Burton Mail: "It's a player we've been watching for quite a while.

"He's an experienced player, in League One at the moment.

"If he does well, we might bring him in.

"We've been looking at left-sided defenders as it's something we feel we're missing and now is the perfect time to do that."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
