PREVIEW: BREWERS V PETERBOROUGH UNITED

27 October 2018

THE Brewers will be hoping to stretch their four games when they take on promotion-chasing Peterborough United this afternoon.

HEAD 2 HEAD

The Brewers have won both of their league meetings with Peterborough. Albion have only suffered one defeat to the Posh in all competitions, a 3-0 defeat in the FA Cup, which took place in 2015.

BURTON ALBION TEAM NEWS

Ben Turner, David Templeton, Scott Fraser, Marvin Sordell and Damien McCrory are all currently on the injured list, having missed the previous two games - but Fraser and Templeton "should be pretty close" according to manager Nigel Clough.

The full injury update is available here.

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

POPPY COLLECTION

There will be a collection at today’s game in support of the Royal British Legion. Please give generously to support this great cause!
