SEPTEMBER PREVIEW

29 August 2016

WE take a look at Burton's upcoming fixtures in September

WOLVES who have had a lot of change on and off the field with a new takeover as well as a new head coach in former Inter Milan and Italy goalkeeper Walter Zenga.

 

They have brought in three Portuguese players in Silvio, Helder Costa and Joao Teixera. As well as the three Portuguese players, they have also brought it in Icelandic international Jón Daði Böðvarsson.


Three days later the side will head to Craven Cottage to play Fulham on Tuesday the 13th of September.

 

Fulham under Slavisa Jakanovic are rebuilding after a very disappointing season last year and have been tipped by some in the media to be a surprise package this year.

 

The lads will then return to the Pirelli for the first time since Derby County when they take on Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday the 17th.

 

Brighton who came 3rd on goal difference last season under the well organized Chris Hughton are sure to be in and around the top six come the end of the season.

 

With the likes of Anthony Knockaert, Glenn Murray and Tomer Hemed they are sure to score plenty of goals through the season. Adding to them the central-midfield options of Beram Kayal, Dale Stephens and experienced head Steve Sidwell they are likely to go well again this year.

 

The Albion squad after Brighton at home will find themselves heading to East Anglia Carrow Road to take on Norwich City on the 24th.

 

Norwich who were relegated last season from the Premier League, have not lost any of their stars and have strengthened by adding Sergi Canos, Michael McGovern and Alex Pritchard. They have also extended the deals of key players like Cameron Jerome, Alex Tettey, Wes Hoolahan and Michael Turner.

 

After a trip to Norwich, Albion end the month of September by welcoming former manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and his side QPR to the Pirelli stadium on the 27th.

 

The game is certain to be played at a higher intensity than the pre-season friendly which happened in July. I am sure this is a game fans will look forward to as they welcome back Jimmy, some of the clubs former staff and former fans favourite Nasser El-Khayti.

 

Overall it looks a very tough month for the Brewers with several sides you’d expect to be pushing up the top end of the table, however with the way the Brewers have fared in August I am sure they are more than capable of picking up points.
