Centre-half and striker absent, but new winger in travelling squad

Paul Cook has confirmed that James Norwood and Toto Nsiala will both miss this weekend's trip to Burton Albion.

Nors departed in the second half against Newport County on Tuesday evening, with Toto having made way in last Saturday's home game against Morecambe with a hamstring issue.

The Town boss did confirm, though, that Kyle Edwards will form part of the matchday squad at Pirelli Stadium, having signed for the Club on Monday.

"Nors and Toto won't be available," Paul said.

"We do a lot of pre-match interviews and I want to give people as much information as I can, but I also do need to be a careful with helping the opposition prepare for us, so sometimes I might be a bit vague.

"Kyle will be part of the squad. It's good to have players of his quality with us.

"We're a work in progress but every day we are working hard to get better. Burton are a well organised team and will be a difficult test."

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's Burton are also dealing with injuries and will likely be without Deji Oshilaja.

The Brewers defender was forced off in Wednesday night's Carabao Cup clash with Oxford, and was seen on crutches after the match.
