Brewers wait on Delap

Last Updated: Fri, 25 Oct 2013 13:11

Rory Delap remains the only possible absentee for Burton as they prepare for the trip to Exeter.

A hamstring problem has kept Delap on the sidelines in recent weeks and the former Stoke and Derby midfielder is still a doubt ahead of this weekend.

Otherwise Albion boss Gary Rowett has a full squad to choose from, meaning a selection dilemma in midfield. Rowett surprisingly left out Lee Bell for Tuesday's 2-0 win over Torquay, instead retaining teenager Matty Palmer and dropping his skipper from the side which beat Chesterfield to allow striker Billy Kee's return after suspension.

"It's great we've got that problem," said Rowett. "For Matty to play instead of Belly shows how much progress he's made. I didn't feel Belly particularly deserved to be dropped, but Matty deserved to stay in."
