Burton missing Templeton for season opener

Burton will be without midfielder David Templeton for their opening match of the Sky Bet League One season against Ipswich.

Templeton is carrying a hip flexor problem, and is expected to be unavailable for up to three weeks.

Defender Richard Nartey will be monitored on a tight hamstring picked up during friendlies.

Midfielder Ben Fox remains sidelined as he recovers from an anterior cruciate ligament knee injury, which is expected to keep him out for the majority of the campaign.

Ipswich, relegated from the Championship, will start life in League One without captain Luke Chambers, who is serving a suspension carried over from a red card in the final game of last season.

Defender Toto Nsiala is set to miss Town’s first few matches as he recovers from a torn hamstring suffered in pre-season.

James Wilson is expected to be handed a deal following his trial, so the former Lincoln defender could be available against Burton, with summer signing James Norwood expected to make his debut.

Midfielder Teddy Bishop (knee), forward Jack Lankester (back) and striker Freddie Sears (knee ) all continue their rehabilitation.
