Team News: Burton Albion v Pools

17 April 2014

We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Saturday's League Two game against Burton Albion at The Pirelli Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Colin Cooper is hoping to have both Marlon Harewood and Andy Monkhouse available for selection when his side travel to face Burton Albion this weekend.

Harewood completed ninety minutes against Chesterfield last weekend despite just returning from an ankle injury and will be hoping to be involved again against The Brewers.

The game against The Spireites came just too soon for Monkhouse who has been sidelined with a hamstring strain recently but he is racing to prove his fitness for Saturday’s away trip.

Christian Burgess won’t be available to Cooper though; the central defender has returned to Middlesbrough for treatment on an ankle injury and is unlikely to play again this season.

Burton boss Gary Rowett has been handed a blow with the news that left-back Damien McCrory will miss the rest of the season after being told he’s likely to need a knee operaton.

Keeper Rob Lainton is also out for the remainder of the campaign with a finger injury which means that Dean Lyness will return between the posts for Albion this weekend.
