BURTON Albion will be looking to put a stop to their losing streak as the Brewers have lost their last three games.But Nigel Clough will be hoping a trip to Wales tomorrow will see his side pick up a first win this year, along with a first goal of 2017.
Cardiff City’s form has picked up under Neil Warnock after Paul Trollope was sacked following their 2-0 defeat in the reverse fixture back in October at the Pirelli Stadium. Since then, Cardiff City have lost five of their 15 games in all competitions which has seen them rise up to 18th position in the Sky Bet Championship, five points above the Albion.
The Brewers have struggled to find form in the new year with their last victory coming against Rotherham United in the last game of 2016. Despite their recent run of losses, Burton Albion are yet to fall into the drop zone at any stage this season.
Andy Garner has recognised the importance of scoring the first goal in games this season, as Burton Albion haven’t lost when they’ve got their noses in front first.
Garner said: “When we have gone ahead we have won the game but at the moment we are going behind and not coming back from that.”
Ben Turner will be returning to a club that he played over 100 games for, both in the Premier League and the Championship and the central defender says he doesn’t feel as though he has a point to prove.
He said: “It will be nice to go back, but I don’t feel like I’ve got a point to prove.” Turner added: “I enjoyed my time there and felt like I was part of probably one of the best runs the club has ever had and during the only period when they got the Premier League, I was luckily enough to be involved in that.”
Tim Robinson will be the man with the whistle at the Cardiff City Stadium tomorrow. The West-Sussex based referee has taken charge of 24 games this season, dishing out 118 yellow cards (5 per game average) and seven red cards. Mr Robinson has officiated the Brewers already this season, in their 1-1 draw with Fulham at Craven Cottage and the 2-0 victory over Birmingham City at the Pirelli Stadium.
