This week sees Burton host Bradford City as the Bantams hope to continue their march up the league table.
Peter Taylor has been discussing the future of a number of players this week. Speaking of Lee Hendrie he told the Telegraph and Argus ‘We`d like to keep him longer and if the opportunity comes to stay here for the rest of the season, then I`m sure he will look seriously at it.’ He also spoke on the future of Moult, Adeyemi, Gill and Brown ‘They are young players that at the minute aren`t going to play for the first teams from the clubs that have loaned them. Their managers know that and I`m sure they would be interested in allowing them to keep playing here and seeing how they do in front of a big crowd.” It is likely to prove more difficult to hold onto the two Man Utd players than Adeyemi and Moult.
