THE Brewers will be aiming to turn their recent good performances into points tomorrow as they travel to Molineux to face top of the league Wolverhampton Wanderers.
HEAD 2 HEAD
Although Wolves beat Burton 4-0 at the Pirelli Stadium in September, that result is their only win over the Brewers in three attempts. The first league meeting between the two took place last season when a late Will Miller strike earned a 1-1 draw for Nigel Clough’s side away from home.
Burton won their home fixture against Wolves 2-1 last season, with Michael Kightly scoring an equaliser against his former club before Cauley Woodrow netted a late winner.
