Bristol Rovers v Burton Albion injury and team news - nine out and one doubt

Latest injury and team news ahead of Bristol Rovers v Burton Albion in the EFL League One - including updates on Jack Hunt and Luke McCormick

Bristol Rovers hope to put their midweek disappointment behind them as they host Burton Albion at the Memorial Stadium in the Sky Bet League One.

The Gas lost 2-0 to Fleetwood Town on Tuesday night and to make matters worse, striker Chris Martin was sent off after two yellow cards. The 35-year-old has 11 goals in 21 league games for Rovers this season and his absence will be felt across the front line.

John Marquis could step up in his place but the 31-year-old hasn't netted a league goal since December 23. He's been limited to two substitute appearances and hasn't started a league match since January 23.

Home debuts could be on the cards for Deadline Day signings Brandon Aguilera and Harry Vaughan who signed from Nottingham Forest and Hull City respectively. Aguilera made an immediate impact as he scored 15 minutes in to his debut, netting the only goal against Exeter City last weekend.

Rovers are in the top-half but a whole 12 points off of the play-offs and Stevenage hold a game in hand over them. A win wouldn't see Rovers move up a place with Leyton Orient five points higher than them but there are Northampton Town, Lincoln City and Wigan Athletic who could all overtake them should results go in their favour and the Brewers win.

Burton are in a closely contested relegation battle and are two points above safety. The Brewers lost last time out to Lincoln City and their game against Cheltenham Town at the Pirelli Stadium was postponed on Tuesday because of a waterlogged pitch. If Martin Paterson's side can claim victory then they could go as high as 15th.

Both teams have players unavailable through injuries and suspensions. Here's the latest injury and team news ahead of kick-off.
