Chesterfield team news to come.
VIEW FROM THE TRAINING GROUND
Burton Albion manager Gary Rowett told BBC Radio Derby:
"There is always a little bit of rivalry with Chesterfield I think. One season we managed to beat them three times and they went up that season, so they had a fantastic team as well.
"That won't stand for an awful lot at this point. We've just got to go there and make sure we respect that they are a very good side.
"They are at the top for a reason. We have got to make sure that we work really hard on our gameplan, and whatever we chose to do on the day, to get a result."
