Football - McGurk could miss out

Leading scorer Adam McGurk is an injury concern for Burton's FA Cup trip to Fleetwood.

PA Sport Report

McGurk has been nursing a heel problem since the league win at Plymouth and has not trained this week but Brewers boss Gary Rowett is hopeful his eight-goal striker will be fit for the second round tie.

If McGurk misses out then Rene Howe is likely to make his first start since mid-September.

Rory Delap has trained all week and the veteran defender could return to the squad after a three-month absence with a hamstring injury. However, striker Michael Symes (groin) and midfielder Adam Reed (hamstring) both remain unavailable.
