BURTON Albion have bolstered their ranks ahead of the League Two play-offs by recalling Chris Hussey from Bury.

The wide man arrived at Gigg Lane last month after falling down the pecking order at the Pirelli Stadium.

In total, he made 11 appearances for the Shakers and scored two goals, but their faint play-off hopes are now over, while Burton require left-side cover since Damien McCrory and Jimmy Phillips were ruled out for the season.

Able to play on both wings as well as at left-back and - at a push - centre-half, his versatility could be handy for the Brewers, and he will be match-fit due to his appearances for Bury.

Manager Gary Rowett said: “We sent Chris to Bury to get invaluable game time and now as we approach the play-offs, we thought it best that he was back with us.

“We feel he benefitted from his time at Bury, and we’re pleased to have him back for this crucial point of the season.”

Hussey's Albion career started well, netting three times in his first four games, but they remain his only goals for the club, as Phillips emerged as first-choice in his favoured left-wing role before the latter's recent injury.

A statement on the Bury website said: "Our best wishes and thanks are extended to Chris for his time spent with the club."
