Burton have received an injury boost after discovering that Tony James' knee injury is not as bad as initially feared.

The centre-half limped out of the defeat at Gillingham last weekend but could be in contention to play against Bradford on Saturday.

It was thought that James might have done damage to his knee joint at Priestfield, with Albion boss Paul Peschisolido bracing himself to be without the experienced defender for several weeks.

However, Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby: "He's progressing alright. He was happy with the way it improved after 24 hours and we're confident he'll be fine."

Meanwhile, fellow defender Nathan Stanton is also close to returning to training after a long-term hamstring injury.

Peschisolido added: "I think he will start training next week, which is a bit of a surprise. He's been running and sprinting - pretty much doing everything. He wants to push it further so we might see him next week."
