MATCH PREVIEW: BREWERS VS DONCASTER

17 August 2018

FRESH off the back of their first win of the season, the Brewers will be looking to pick-up their first League One points of the season against Doncaster Rovers.

HEAD 2 HEAD

Albion have never beaten Doncaster Rovers. They have lost twice and drawn twice. Their last two meetings have ended in stalemate, with the most recent being the 0-0 draw which secured Burton Albion’s promotion to the Championship on the final day of the 2015-16 season.

 

BURTON ALBION TEAM NEWS

Nigel Clough has a growing injury list ahead of the home game against Doncaster.

He will definitely be without Damien McCrory, who picked a hamstring injury at home to Gillingham that is likely to keep him out for at least three to four weeks.

Jamie Allen also missed the trip to Shrewsbury with a back problem and Will Miller is still not back in contention following his long-term knee injury.

 

DONCASTER TEAM NEWS

Tommy Rowe was rested for Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup win over Scunthorpe but could return for the game against the Brewers.

BAG POLICY
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.
