FULHAM MATCH PREVIEW

12 September 2016

BURTON Albion travel to Fulham tomorrow night, in their second consecutive away fixture.

The Brewers earned a 1-1 draw with Wolves at the weekend thanks to a 94th minute strike from Tottenham-loanee Will Miller.

Fulham suffered their first defeat of the season as Gary Rowett's Birmingham City beat the cottagers 1-0 thanks to a Clayton Donaldson penalty. Fulham's head coach Jokanović stated: “We didn’t start very well and I tried to find a solution during the game but I didn’t find it."

“My boys tried to fight but we didn’t find it and we didn’t play a good enough game.”

Nigel Clough will speak to the press at 2:30PM today where we will then bring you his thoughts on tomorrow's game.

Burton now go into tomorrow's game off the back of a four-game unbeaten run whilst Fulham will be looking to instantly bounce back in order to remain in the play-off places. At this early stage in the season, a win for the Brewers could take them up to fourth in the Sky Bet Championship.

The two sides have met once before, in a League Cup fixture at the Pirelli Stadium. The visitors went in front on 36 minutes through Adel Taarabt but Jack Dyer's 85th minute strike took Fulham to extra time. Michael Symes put the Brewers ahead on 102 minutes but Fulham came fighting back and Hugo Rodallega equalised on 117 minutes. The visitors netted all of their penalties in the shootout and it was John Arne Riise's that knocked the Brewers out of the cup.

Tuesday's man in charge will be Mr Tim Robinson, whilst his assistants are Andrew Fox and Ian Cooper, the fourth official is Charley Breakspear. Robinson has produced an average of four yellow cards per game, and has most recently brandished nine yellows in Portsmouth's 4-2 victory over Wycombe.
