Football - Burton wait on Symes

Michael Symes is a doubt for Burton's home game against Cheltenham but Brewers boss Gary Rowett should see his squad boosted by the return of three other players.

Symes is nursing a knee injury and the striker will be assessed ahead of kick-off on Saturday. Should he not be fit he will join defender Shane Cansdell-Sherriff, who is out until February after suffering a fractured cheekbone, on the sidelines.

Goalkeeper Dean Lyness (hip), defender Damien McCrory (hamstring) and midfielder Lee Bell (hamstring) are all expected to be available, having been doubts for last weekend's postponed FA Cup tie at Bournemouth.

Defender Adam Buxton and winger Zeli Ismail have this week arrived on one-month loan deals while striker Rene Howe has left the club to join Burton's League Two rivals Newport.
