Burton Albion have a couple of injury concerns ahead of their Sky Bet League 2 Play-Off Final against Fleetwood Town at Wembley Stadium on Monday.

Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee Zeli Ismail missed their Semi-Final second leg tie at Southend United with a hamstring strain and has been at his parent club for fitness tests this week. He'll continue to be monitored in the hours leading up to kick-off.

Shane Cansdell-Sherriff, who is on loan from Preston North End, is also a doubt for Gary Rowett's Brewers. After playing the full 90 minutes at Roots Hall with a sore Achilles, the defender has been absent from training all week.

Captain Ian Sharps is ruled out through suspension following his red card in the first leg, meaning Rowett could have problems in central defence should Cansdell-Sherriff not recover in time.

Fleetwood Town were hoping to have Jeff Hughes available, but the midfielder has been ruled out by boss Graham Alexander. Hughes broke a leg in January and is yet to return to first-team action.

Goalkeeper Scott Davies is a doubt with a thigh problem meaning Chris Maxwell will start, as he did in both legs of the Semi-Final against York City.

Should Davies not be fit enough to make the bench, Alexander will be forced to call upon 36-year-old David Lucas, who hasn't played a competitive game since February 2013.?
