MATCH PREVIEW - FLEETWOOD TOWN (H)

11 March 2022

THE Brewers return to home league action tomorrow, as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s men take on Fleetwood Town at the Pirelli Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Albion will look to secure all three points in the first home game at the Pirelli Stadium in last three weeks.

FORM GUIDE

Both sides find themselves out of winning form at the moment and will both hoping to be on the end of a positive result come 5pm on Saturday evening.

Albion go into the game off the back of a disappointing 4-1 defeat away at promotion pushing Oxford United. The Brewers have lost the last three games and will aim to end that streak this weekend against the Cod Army.

The visitor’s last outing came in a 3-1 defeat against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday night, despite initially taking the lead. Stephen Crainey’s side are without a win in their last 10 games and will hope to change their fortunes in order to move them away from the relegation zone.

HEAD 2 HEAD

There is nothing to separate Albion and tomorrow’s visitors on the head-to-head record. Since the Brewers promotion to the EFL, the sides have both recorded eight wins a piece, with only one draw in the 17 games played between the two clubs in all competitions.

MATCHDAY MEMORY

The last meeting at the Pirelli Stadium between the Brewers and tomorrow’s opponents came in the later stages of the 2020/21 season. Albion secured a comfortable 5-2 win in what was the first match after the side secured a remarkable turnaround to avoid relegation.

Match Reports

MATCH REPORT: BURTON ALBION 3-2 FLEETWOOD TOWN

12 March 2022

A barnstorming second half comeback saw the Brewers come from two goals down against Fleetwood Town as Oumar Niasse's brace and a first Burton goal for Louis Moult secured a dramatic 3-2 win.

Trailing 2-0 after an hour Albion showed plenty of character and spirit to hit back and take all three points after a nervy opening period where an unfortunate own goal from Deji Oshilaja put the visitors in front and things got worse for Albion early in the second half when substitute Dan Butterworth scored within seconds of arriving on the pitch.

The two goal lead, crucially, lasted only a couple of minutes as Niasse grabbed his first and the visitors were largely on the back foot as Moult, himself a substitute, scored within a couple of minutes of arriving on the pitch before Niasse completed the turnaround in the final minute with a calm finish.

Back on home soil after three straight defeats there were five changes in the starting line-up. Conor Shaughnessy returned and slotted in as a defensive midfielder in a 4-2-3-1 formation that saw Tom Hamer switch to left back, John Brayford move to right back with Sam Hughes and Deji Oshilaja in the middle. Michael Mancienne was recalled to partner Shaughnessy and Charlie Lakin was pushed into an attacking midfield role, Jonny Smith and Harry Chapman providing the wide support behind Oumar Niasse.

Shaughnessy hooked an early Burton corner wide of the target before Ben Garratt was called upon to make the first save of note pushing away an angled effort from Ged Garner.

After a scrappy opening to the game it was the visitors who took the lead in strange fashion on 19 minutes. A long free kick into the Burton box tempted Garratt off his line but he failed to get a punch on it and the ball appeared to loop up off OSHILAJA and bounce into the net.

Garner saw enough of the goal to have another shot from the edge of the box but again Garratt went low to push away his effort.

Albion rattled the post on 25 minutes, Smith finding space inside the box at the back post, unmarked but having driven the ball across goal and past former Albion stopper Kieran O'Hara there was frustration as the ball thudded against the post and bounced out.

The game struggled for any real flow as both sides struggled to create any fluent moves but Albion created a half chance from a corner on the left, Sam Hughes getting his head to the ball but unable to do enough to seriously test O'Hara.

Half time: Burton Albion 0-1 Fleetwood Town

Albion started the second half brighter and a teasing ball forward from Chapman had Smith racing into the box but after cutting inside onto his favoured left foot he lifted his shot high and wide of the target.

Fleetwood made a change and substitute BUTTERWORTH scored with his first touch prodding home Cian Hayes cross from inside the six yard box.

Albion almost conjured up an immediate response when NIASSE turned sharply in the box to fire a shot against the post but the big striker was on the scoresheet on 61 minutes heading in from close range after Shaughnessy had looped a header against the bar and Smith had forced a good save from O'Hara on the follow-up.

Substitute Christian Saydee whipped a low ball through the six yard box on 65 minutes but Niasse was unable to reach it as the Brewers showed renewed vigour to try and force an equaliser.

Garratt came up with a crucial save to deny Butterworth a second after Hughes had been all too easily dispossessed thirty yards from his own goal. And it was the same again on 78 minutes as the substitute worked a shooting chance on the edge of the box but the Burton keeper was equal to his effort to deny Fleetwood a third.

Albion threw Moult on and took off Brayford in the last ten minutes in search of an equaliser and the striker was on the spot to swivel and fire home when Hughes hooked the ball into the danger area.

Moult also saw a scrambled effort cleared off the line as a flurry of corners saw Albion applying late pressure. And the pressure told in the final minute of normal time as NIASSE showed great composure to turn once again turn and find space inside the box, latching on to Saydee's hooked ball forwards before calmly dinking the ball home to complete a breathtaking finish to the game and secure a much needed three points.

ALBION: Garratt; Brayford (Moult, 82), Hughes, Oshilaja, Hamer; Shaughnessy, Mancienne (Saydee, 60); Smith, Lakin (Gilligan, 60), Chapman; Niasse.
Substitutes: Kovar, Borthwick-Jackson, Ahadme, Maddox.

GOALS: ALBION - Niasse (61, 90), Moult (84) ; FLEETWOOD - Oshilaja (18 own goal), Butterworth (57)
