We've shown that in the two games since the Trophy Semi-Finals we can't seem to raise our game anymore. Tamworth was a bore draw and St Albans was spoilt by poor officialdom that led to the dismissal of two of our better players.
James Constable will be missing following a straight red for 'violent conduct' and Stuart Whitehead for picking up two yellows followed by a red in the same game. The rules on the Whitehead incident seem a bit vague because two yellows mean the punishment doesn't kick in until seven days later but a yellow followed by a red means it kicks in immediately.
As it stands Constable will miss the next three games and Whitehead will miss one game.
The situation regarding Scott Bevans injury is dragging on a bit too long now and a simple calf injury should have cleared up by now. It was three weeks ago when it happened.
After Steve Taylor's calamitous error at St Albans that led to their goal he can't come back soon enough.
Two of the new guys had decent games and I expect Glenn Wilson to carry on in place of Jeff Kenna. Andy Ferrell also deputised well for Gavin Hurren and rumour has it that Trigger is facing surgery on his leg. They'll have to get it operated on soon if he wants to play at Wembley.
The other new face, Jon Brady, replaced Simon Russell but was less successful and made way for Scholesy soon after the break on Saturday. I expect it will pan out that way again against Burton and Russell will come on later in the game.
Striker Jon Shaw is Burton's only injury doubt after injuring his ankle in the 2-1 home win against Morecambe on Saturday.
As stated at the start of this preview I don't think we're on the ball at the moment and I expect it to be a tough game against Burton. Prove me wrong and win it.
