Burton Albion FC vs Nottingham Forest - Burton have injury concerns over duo

Ben Turner and Luke Murphy are injury concerns for Burton as they prepare to host Nottingham Forest.

With Tom Flanagan (calf) out for the rest of the month, Brewers boss Nigel Clough will be keen that Turner (calf) and Murphy (shin) return after both missed the goalless draw at Ipswich.

Centre-half Turner will not resume training until Friday while John Brayford and Lloyd Dyer are also nursing knocks.

Club record signing Liam Boyce is likely to feature again as he continues to edge closer to a first league start following his recovery from a serious knee injury.

Forest boss Aitor Karanka is expected to make changes following the disappointing home defeat to Hull.

The likes of Ben Watson, Tobias Figueiredo and Juan Fuentes are all strong contenders to start on Saturday.

Karanka might also opt to change his goalkeeper again, after Costel Pantilimon replaced Jordan Smith at Fulham at the beginning of this month, with Stefanos Kapino in contention to play.

Liam Bridcutt is fit again after injury and the midfielder is another who could be restored to the team.
