The striker has not featured for the first team since the 3-0 defeat at Reading on November 19, with a dead leg sustained in a reserve-team fixture keeping him out of recent matches.

Kyle McFadzean suffered a cut knee during the home defeat to Huddersfield on Tuesday night but Burton boss Nigel Clough, who has called the game between his side and Newcastle "the biggest mis-match of the season in a league game anywhere in the country", expects to have the defender available.

Fellow centre-half Ben Turner will miss out again as he completes a two-match suspension.
