Burton Albion's Nathan Stanton suffers torn hamstring

Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido fears that centre-half Nathan Stanton will be missing for most of September with a torn hamstring.

Stanton suffered the injury in Saturday's 3-0 home victory over Hereford and had to be substituted.

Peschisolido told BBC Radio Derby: "He felt his hamstring go straight away - hopefully it is not that bad but the early sign is that it's torn.

"I would see him being out of action for a few weeks."

But there was better news concerning Stanton's fellow centre-back Darren Moore, who collided with the advertising hoardings in the same game.

Peschisolido added: "He hit the boards quite hard and has some lacerations and cuts to his hands, wrist and face and has some bruised ribs and will be a bit sore but I feel more sorry for that board.

"Hopefully he will be alright and should be fine for Saturday."
