Accrington v Burton preview
Last Updated: 07/09/18 10:36am
Accrington are monitoring the fitness of striker Billy Kee ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League One home clash with Burton.
Kee has been nursing a foot problem and sat out last weekend's 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe. Connor Hall and Luke Charman could be part of the matchday squad for the first time after joining on loan last Friday.
The other player Stanley signed on loan the day before the Scunthorpe match, Daniel Barlaser, was an unused substitute in that game.

Burton's Jake Buxton, John Brayford and Damien McCrory are all expected to miss Saturday's contest as they continue their recoveries from injury. While there are concerns over David Templeton (groin), Scott Fraser (knock) and Ben Fox (heel), boss Nigel Clough is hoping all three will be fit for the trip to the Wham Stadium.
Stephen Bywater remains sidelined by his shoulder problem and Liam Boyce is unavailable due to being on international duty with Northern Ireland. Kyle McFadzean is able to make his return to league action having served his one-match ban during the 3-0 win over AFC Wimbledon last weekend. He subsequently played in Tuesday's 2-1 Checkatrade Trophy loss to Walsall at the Pirelli Stadium.
Accrington Stanley have only won one of their last six league meetings with Burton (D1 L4), winning 1-0 in the last meeting at the Wham Stadium in 2015.
Since winning on their first ever trip to Accrington in 2010, Burton have only won one of the five such matches, all coming in League Two (D1 L3).
Accrington Stanley have lost just one of their last 15 home league games (W11 D3), however they have failed to win any of their opening three games so far at the Wham Stadium since being promoted from League Two (D2 L1).
Burton have lost each of their last four EFL games on the road, last going on a longer run of consecutive away defeats back in March 2012 (run of six).
Sean McConville has been involved in 50% of Stanley's eight league goals so far this season (two goals and two assists).
