Manager Paul Sturrock is looking forward to locking horns with his former right hand man Kevin Summerfield on Tuesday night.
Summerfield, 53, was Sturrock’s assistant manager at Plymouth Argyle, Sheffield Wednesday and Swindon Town.
Now assisting Burton Albion boss Gary Rowett, Sturrock knows his old confidant has helped build a good side ahead of the Brewers visit tomorrow.
“I’m looking forward to seeing Kevin again,” Sturrock told the official website.
“He was my old first team coach at Sheffield Wednesday, Plymouth and Swindon.
“Now he is number two at Burton and he’s really helped to put together a strong team.
“They are one of the best teams in the division and much stronger than last year.
“It is going to be a tight match as they have some exciting players forward players.
“If we play like we did in the first half Saturday then it is going to be even more difficult.”
Sturrock also confirmed that Paul Smith (neck), Gavin Tomlin (groin) and Mark Phillips (groin) are doubts for the clash at Roots Hall.
Meanwhile, striker Barry Corr is unavailable, as he looks set to start a three-match ban following his red card against Plymouth.
“I didn’t think they would change their minds, so that’s why we haven’t appealed,” confirmed Sturrock.
“It’s a pity for Barry as we chatted about it today and he will be internally disciplined now.”
