MATCH PREVIEW: ACCRINGTON STANLEY V BREWERS

7 September 2018

THE Brewers head to the Wham Stadium looking for their first win of 2018/19 as we take on Accrington Stanley in Sky Bet League One.

HEAD 2 HEAD

The Brewers of course have a long history with Accrington Stanley, going back to both clubs' respective tenures in the Northern Premier League and the Conference.

In the EFL, Albion have come out on top on three of the last four occasions that the sides have met in League Two, with Stanley inflicting a 1-0 defeat on Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's promotion-chasing side in a rearranged game back in February 2015 - that was the last time The Brewers played at the Wham Stadium.

In total, Albion and Stanley share five wins apiece in League Two, with two draws in 2011 (1-1) and 2013 (3-3).

BURTON ALBION TEAM NEWS

Defenders Jake Buxton (back), Damien McCrory (hamstring) and John Brayford (hamstring) are all expected to miss the trip to Accrington.

Buxton and McCrory are both working closely with physio Nick Fenton as they build their fitness aiming at a first team return.

Manager Nigel Clough is hopeful over the fitness of David Templeton (groin), Scott Fraser (knock) and Ben Fox (heel), but top scorer Liam Boyce will definitely miss out through international duty with Northern Ireland. Stephen Bywater (shoulder) also misses out.

ACCRINGTON STANLEY TEAM NEWS

Stanley will monitor the fitness of striker Billy Kee (foot) after the former Brewer missed out last weekend's 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe United.

Connor Hall and Luke Charman could be part of Stanley's matchday squad after joining on loan.

OFFICIALS

Carl Boyeson will be the man in the middle for this weekend's game.

The East Yorkshire referee has taken charge of three League One, one Checkatrade Trophy and two League Two games this term, handing out 19 yellow cards in his six matches in total.
