BURTON Albion will host Barnsley at the Pirelli Stadium in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon in what will be one of three games this month.The two sides have met three times before, once in the FA Cup and twice in Sky Bet League One. Burton have never beat Barnsley but have only conceded one goal against them in the league. The scores ended 0-0 when Barnsley visited the Pirelli last season whilst the away fixture finished 1-0 to the home side.
Burton will be going into the game off the back of a 2-0 defeat to Leeds United on Saturday whilst Barnsley most recently drew 2-2 with Bristol City. The Brewers have taken seven points from their last five games whereas Barnsley have taken just four from their last five.
