Match Previews


24 February 2018

BURTON Albion are back at the Pirelli Stadium today after their first win in seven games against Barnsley at Oakwell. Nigel Clough's side host Millwall today (3pm).


The two sides have met three times in their history, all of which have come in league fixtures. They first met in League One where both teams won a game each.

The most-recent meeting in the Championship was at The Den back in November where Marvin Sordell's goal was enough to earn the Brewers all three points in a 1-0 victory.


Nigel Clough could name an unchanged starting XI from Tuesday night's invaluable win over fellow strugglers Barnsley.

Full-back pairing John Brayford and Tom Flanagan are both out with calf problems while Damien McCrory is still rebuilding fitness following a lengthy spell on the sidielines so Lloyd Dyer and Lucas Akins will once again be used as makeshift full-backs.

Ben Turner and Will Miller are the other absentees for the hosts as they welcome Millwall to the Pirelli Stadium.


Fred Onyedinma is in the running for a start ahead of Ben Marshall out wide as Millwall go in search of a fifth win from seven games.

Tim Cahill is still building up fitness and remains unlikely to start, although the Australian international should make the bench for the trip to the Pirelli.

Byron Webster, Shane Ferguson and Aiden O'Brien are all long-term absentees for the visitors and will play no part here.


Robert Jones will be the man in the middle this afternoon. Mr Jones has predominantly taken charge of League One and League Two games so far this season, but has most-recently made the step up to the Championship.

He was in charge of Burton Albion's 0-0 draw with Norwich City at the Pirelli Stadium back in December.

He will be assisted by Mark Pottage and Mark Jones with Simon Hooper the fourth official.


Albion supporters can still purchase tickets for this afternoon's game against Millwall, and can do so online, over the phone (01283 565938) or in person by visiting the club shop during opening hours.

Ticket prices are as follows (terrace):

Young Person 17-22: £15.00

Burton Albion encourages fans to walk to the ground or use public transport to get to the stadium if possible. Supporters who do come to the ground in vehicles are encouraged to car share. 
All supporters are asked to park responsibly and to be aware of parking restrictions and the needs of residents when leaving their vehicles.


The Burton Albion Community Trust (BACT) will be hosting a mixture of footballing activities on the Burton Albion Community Football Centre 3G before today's game.

Activities include small sided games, penalty shoot outs, skill challenges and much more. It's completely FREE with a match ticket! Just turn up between 1.15PM and 2PM.

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.
