Rowett: Receives injury boost

Team news for Thursday's FA Cup first-round replay between Altrincham and Burton Albion at Moss Lane.

Jacques Maghoma missed the league defeat at Cheltenham on Saturday through a combination of illness and injury, but Brewers boss Gary Rowett hopes to have the midfielder back in contention for the televised tie.

Maghoma was one of Albion's goalscorers in their great escape at home to the Blue Square Bet North side 10 days ago when they had to come from 2-0 and 3-2 down to salvage a 3-3 draw with an injury-time equaliser from Calvin Zola.

Rowett will definitely be able to call on Damien McCrory, the left-back being available again after serving a one-match suspension.

The trip to Lancashire begins a run of three games in six days for Burton. It is followed by home league matches against Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday and then Aldershot on Tuesday night.
