Billy Kee: Nursing ankle injury

Striker Kee suffered an ankle injury in training on Tuesday while defender Webster pulled a calf muscle.

With top-scorer Calvin Zola, left-back Damien McCrory, centre-half Nathan Stanton and loan signing Alex MacDonald all already on the sidelines, Albion boss Gary Rowett could be down to the bare bones.

Loanee Ian Sharps is also unavailable to face his parent club while skipper Zander Diamond will begin a four-match ban.

"We had a bit of a nightmare with Billy going down with an ankle injury and Aaron picking up a calf injury," Rowett told the Burton Mail.

"It was one of those days - and it's been one of those weeks. We'll have to sit down on Friday, have a count up and see who we've got.

"Unless something drastic happens, we'll try to get through Saturday and reassess after the weekend. It's a case of waiting and seeing - there are no immediate plans to get anyone in."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
