Burton Albion defender Ian Sharps could make 500 career league appearances if he plays against Newport County tomorrow.

Sharps, 33, has had a career spanning over 16 years playing for the likes Tranmere Rovers, Rotherham United and Shrewsbury Town before joining the Brewers last year.

The experienced centre-back thought he had played his 500th career game last season but an error by soccerbase has seen him not on the magic number just yet and is one game away.

Talking to the Burton Mail, Sharps said: ”I thought it was the last game of last season. I’d had a look and thought I’d got there. But it’ll be nice to do it again. I don’t know the stat of how many people do it, but shows you’ve been around the game a long time.”
