Nine first team players, battling for a start in the senior side, have been named in today's line up as our reserves play away to Burton Albion today.Boss Adam Murray has named a strong starting XI this afternoon in Staffordshire, but has not put himself in the squad, despite hinting that he may 'have a run out' in his post-match interview on Saturday.
Defender John Dempster (pictured) makes his first appearance in the reserves for five months, whilst youth team players Corbin Shires and Joe Fitzpatrick have been handed starts following impressive recent displays.
The match, at St George's Park, will kick-off at 2pm.
