Burton Albion v Morecambe preview

Team news for Tuesday's League Two clash between Burton Albion and Morecambe at Pirelli Stadium.

Burton will have an unchanged squad.

Albion boss Gary Rowett must decide whether to change a winning team following back-to-back victories over Fleetwood and Exeter or name the same starting line up for the third straight match.

Aaron Webster (calf) and Nathan Stanton (knee) remain on the sidelines along with fellow defender Zander Diamond, who will serve the final match of a four-game suspension.

Seven successive home wins have helped Burton climb into an automatic promotion place, but Rowett is keen to play down his side's achievements.

He said: "We're trying to remain focused about what we need to do. Once again everyone else is talking up our position - we're just trying to stay true to what we've tried to achieve so far this season.

"I just see our division as very even. If you go into a game with the likes of Morecambe thinking that it's somehow going to be easier than Rotherham, Fleetwood or Exeter, I think it'll actually be a more difficult game, a different kind of test.

"I don't care where Morecambe are [in the table]. We just know they're a very good side, on a very good run on form. And we won't take anyone lightly."

Morecambe are set to be without Andy Parrish.

Parrish limped out of Saturday's entertaining 1-1 draw against Bristol Rovers after picking up a thigh injury.

Robbie Threlfall replaced him during the first half and is expected to deputise at full-back.

Andy Wright must serve another game on the sidelines with suspension.

The midfielder received two yellow cards in the Shrimps' 1-0 win over Port Vale but had an extra match added to his one-game suspension for reacting angrily to the referee's decision.

Jack Redshaw is poised to start once more having netted his 11th goal of the season at the weekend and boss Jim Bentley is demanding more from the diminutive striker.

"He's just got to have that hunger," Bentley told the Morecambe Visitor. "He's played well and looked good on the eye and caused their centre halves problems.

"He's had four shots on target and scored one, seen a couple cleared off the line and popped up everywhere, but he's got to have that hunger in his game."
