Football - Symes absent for Albion

Michael Symes is a new injury absentee for Burton ahead of the visit of Bristol Rovers.

PA Sport Report

Symes sustained a groin injury during the 2-0 defeat at Dagenham last weekend and he will miss out against the Pirates, joining Rory Delap on the sidelines.

Delap suffered a setback in his recovery from an ongoing hamstring problem a couple of weeks ago. The former Derby and Stoke midfielder has not featured for Albion since a 2-0 home defeat to Oxford on September 7.

He and Symes will still be absent on Tuesday night when Mansfield visit the Pirelli Stadium, according to Burton boss Gary Rowett.
