George Boyd.

Louis Reed and Josh Knight can expect to return in place of NIall Mason and Alex Woodyard after missing last night’s (November 19) FA Cup win over Stevenage.

On-loan Leicester player Knight missed the Stevenage match because of a slight muscle issue, but he should be available for the Burton game.

Reed was rested rather than dropped for that game as Ferguson wanted to see Mason in a midfield role.
