In the two Carabao Cup matches that he has refereed this season, John Brooks has handed out six yellow cards and given one penalty.

 

TICKETS AND PARKING

The Pirelli Tyres staff car park will be open for supporters to park in ahead of tomorrow’s game at home to Nottingham Forest.

With a big crowd expected, the car park, close by to the Pirelli Stadium, will be available for all supporters to park at on a first-come, first-served basis.

The car park is just along Derby Road (turning right at the Beech pub if you are heading towards the Pirelli Stadium) and parking at the site will cost £3.

There will be NO cash turnstiles in operation for this game and EVERY supporter must have a ticket.

 

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
