SEASON REVIEW: MARCH

11 July 2016

MARCH

Sheffield United 0-1 BAFC
Lucas Akins' sixth goal of the season was all that required to send Albion eight points clear of third place in Sky Bet League One affording manager Nigel Clough a triumphant return to Bramall Lane on his first return visit after leaving Sheffield United at the end of last season. 


Crewe Alexandra 1-1 BAFC
A hard earned point on the road at Gresty Road was enough to push Albion nine points clear of the play-offs in Sky Bet League One as Lucas Akins again proved to be the man on the mark for the promotion chasing Brewers. 

Bradford City 2-0 BAFC
A frustrating night in West Yorkshire for Burton Albion saw Nigel Clough's side succumb to a 2-0 defeat at the end of three away games in a week. Kyel Reid's left foot shot after 13 minutes and defender Reece Burke's second senior goal, following a good save from former Bantams keeper Jon McLaughlin, secured all three points for the Bantams in the first half. It could have been worse for the Brewers without McLaughlin making an excellent penalty save from Tony McMahon deep into the second period. Albion struggled to overcome an inspired Bradford side who more than avenged their 3-1 defeat at the Pirelli a few short weeks ago. 

BAFC 2-1 Fleetwood Town
A brace of fine finishes from Mark Duffy saw off the challenge of ten man Fleetwood Town at the Pirelli Stadium exacting a modicum of revenge for the Brewers heaviest defeat of the season at Highbury back in October and getting Albion back to winning ways once more, extending their lead at the top of Sky Bet League One to six points over nearest challengers Wigan Athletic. 


Port Vale 0-4 BAFC
Burton Albion chose the perfect game to produce their best away performance of the season as a 4-0 victory saw Staffordshire bragging rights head back along the A50 to the Pirelli Stadium. 


BAFC 0-0 Oldham Athletic
Honours even at the Pirelli Stadium as The Brewers or the Latics couldn’t find the back of the net. The Albion came into the game full of confidence off the back of a 4-0 victory over Port Vale. With Matty Palmer ineligible to play for Oldham, they were left short in midfield.

Millwall 2-0 BAFC
First half goals from Aiden O'Brien and Lee Gregory put another dent in the Brewers promotion challenge as a first trip to the Den turned into a fruitless encounter for Albion.
