WE have the second of our back-to-back home games coming up quickly as Burton Albion host Fleetwood Town at the Pirelli Stadium tomorrow night (7.45pm kick-off).
The Brewers will be looking to build on our fantastic 3-2 victory over Forest Green Rovers at the weekend – tickets are on sale right now and you can save on matchday prices by purchasing yours today!
The Brewers and the Cod Army have met 18 times since both sides made it into the Football League – and results have largely been split in that time. Albion have picked up nine victories to Fleetwood’s eight, with just one draw between the two sides since August 2012.
That draw actually came in the FA Cup second round in 2013, with both sides playing out a 1-1 draw at Highbury before the Brewers triumphed 1-0 in the replay at the Pirelli.
Of the seven games played at the Pirelli Stadium in the last decade, the Brewers have won four with Fleetwood boasting the better record at Highbury.
Our last game at the Pirelli saw Town take a 2-0 lead before two goals from Oumar Niasse and one from Louis Moult secured a 3-2 win for the Brewers.
Tomorrow night’s referee is Charles Breakspear. Breakspear, from Surrey, has shown four red cards and 43 yellows in his 12 games so far this season. The last match Breakspear officiated involving the Brewers was last season’s 2-1 win away at Lincoln City.
The assistant referees are Mark Cunliffe and Hristo Karaivanov, with Andrew Hendley as the fourth official.
Our new-look Family Zone returns with a host of fun, games and music taking place on the 3G pitch and inside the community trust building.
We love to welcome families to the Pirelli Stadium and the fun starts 90 minutes before each home game.Billy Brewer will be on hand and has been trying out some of the indoor and outdoor activities.
The Family Zone will also be visited by two Burton Albion first team players so make sure to grab a picture with them!
