Neil Warnock has explained the absence of Lee Camp (pictured) during the pre-season campaign.

The 32 year old keeper is recovering from an operation which will keep him out of action until the end of August.

"We've always known that Camp won't be starting the season. It'll probably be the end of August when he's back after his operation, we knew that," said Warnock.


Neil Etheridge has been the regular starter in pre-season and the 55 times capped Phillipines internation will be in goal at Burton on Saturday week.

When Camp is fit he will challenge Etheridge for the no. 1 spot with Brian Murphy avaialble as City's third keeper.
