Football - Brewers have defensive concerns

Shane Cansdell-Sherriff is an injury concern for Burton's trip to fellow promotion hopefuls Oxford.

PA Sport Report

Cansdell-Sherriff is a doubt because of a hamstring injury so Marcus Holness is on standby to make a rare start and deputise in central defence.

Veteran striker Gary Alexander is struggling with a knee injury while fellow forward Michael Symes is still nursing the knee problem that has kept him out for several weeks.

Lee Bell, Alex MacDonald and Adam McGurk are options for Albion boss Gary Rowett, who celebrated his 40th birthday on Thursday, should he feel like making changes in midfield or attack.
