Match Previews


28 April 2018

BURTON Albion host Bolton Wanderers this afternoon, with both sides knowing that a win would be crucial to their survival chances.


Only two competitive meetings have taken place between the two sides, with the Brewers winning each of them 1-0. The most recent match between the two came in December, when a goal from Lloyd Dyer secured all three points for Burton in the first every league game between the teams.


While Lloyd Dyer has a terrific record against Bolton, scoring four times and winning seven of his eight games against them, the Burton top-scorer will not be able to add to it. The ex-Leicester winger will miss the game through a hamstring injury, while Damien McCrory is also a doubt for the match


Filipe Morais (calf) and Antonee Robinson (shoulder) will be assessed prior to the game this afternoon. Morais has managed one goal and three assists in 31 league games this season.


Graham Scott has refereed two Championship games this season and has issued 11 yellow cards, one red card and awarded one penalty. The Oxfordshire referee has predominantly worked in the Premier League this season, where he has took charge of 18 games.


Supporters can park in the Pirelli Stadium car park for just £5, as well as Burton Albion's overflow car park at Ryknild Industrial Estate, left at the island for £5. the Pirelli Tyres staff car park is available this season (£3 per car).

After a successful trial Burton Albion Football Club is making its Family Area a regular feature for the remainder of the 2017-18 Season.

Fans wishing to use the Family Area should enter the ground by the North Stand turnstiles and then turn right and enter the stand at the far end. They should then use section J of the stand which will be reserved for under 16s and their families. No person will be allowed into this area unless they are with an under 16. There will be zero tolerance of bad language in the Family Area.


Burton Albion is reminding fans that they are encouraged not to bring bags to the Pirelli Stadium.

The policy is in operation for security and safety reasons and is in line with other football clubs in the EFL.

The club does not permit holdalls and rucksacks in the stands, terraces or in hospitality areas. The club also discourages bringing smaller bags into the ground. Anyone bringing any bag to the Pirelli Stadium will have to have it checked and tagged by security staff. This will mean that supporters must be willing to present their bags for checking on arrival and that there may be queues meaning extra time will be needed to enter the stadium.
