Bruce: I could make more changes for Burton clash

Steve Bruce says he’d have no qualms about making big changes to his team for the visit of Burton Albion.

We face the Brewers on Boxing Day, with the game set for a full house.

Bruce made six alterations to his side for the win over QPR, with Mark Bunn, Nathan Baker, Gary Gardner, Ross McCormack, Leandro Bacuna and Albert Adomah all coming in for the Loftus Road encounter.

Despite the 1-0 victory, Bruce admits he’s considering more movement on the team sheet as he aims to keep the squad fresh and on their toes.

He said: “Maybe, we didn’t handle playing two games in three days. I will look at that – that could be part of it. I could learn from that. 

“Do you change it around and put some freshness in? With the squad I have got, we have equal in depth on the bench as on the pitch. There’s not a standout 11, I have a group of players. 

“I made six changes for the QPR game and we won a match. I could quite easily make another six changes for Monday’s match. 

“All the ones I brought in at QPR have been chomping at the bit. 

“They have given me something to think about now because they have performed. At the moment, they are ones in charge of the jersey.”
