Greg Pearson back in the frame for Burton Albion

Burton Albion striker Greg Pearson is pushing for a recall after more than two months on the sidelines.

Pearson has not played since the opening day of the season after fracturing a big toe in training.

But the 26-year-old may play against Barnet on Saturday as top scorer Justin Richards has a back strain.

Manager Paul Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby: "We're watching Greg in training and he looks sharp so we'll see how it goes."

Pearson, who scored five goals in 16 league starts last season, only played 13 minutes as a substitute in the first League Two fixture of the season against Torquay United.

But Peschisolido added: "Greg is one of those players who probably doesn't need to train. He just comes in and seems to be back on it again."
