4,444 MILES TO BE COVERED NEXT SEASON

30 May 2017

BURTON Albion will travel a total of 4,444 miles in the Sky Bet Championship during the 2017/18 season.

The longest distance covered for one match will be when the Brewers take on Norwich City at Carrow Road. A trip that will see 348 miles added to the clock.

Derby County will be the shortest trip of the season again - just 25 miles will be added for the round-trip to Pride Park.

Hull City, Middlesbrough and Sunderland were all demoted from the Premier League this season and will therefore add 880 miles onto the mileage clock for the Brewers.

At the other end of the table Bolton Wanderers, Millwall and Sheffield United gained promotion to England’s second tier. Their combined mileage will see Nigel Clough’s men travel 510 miles.

There are five London clubs in the division this season, which means of the 4,444 miles 1,289 of those will be spent travelling to and from England’s capital city.
