THE Brewers travel to Oakwell today in search of their first league away win of the season. However, Albion know it will be a tough test against a side that has only lost once in League One so far.
HEAD 2 HEAD
The Brewers have not lost at Oakwell since 2015. Seven meetings have taken place between the two sides, with Burton Albion winning only once. That win came in the most recent fixture between the two sides.
Jamie Allen and Jacob Davenport scored in a 2-1 win to take all three points back to Staffordshire in February.

Zeki Fryers, Ryan Hedges and Brad Potts are all unlikely to start against the Brewers. Cauley Woodrow will have to wait for his Albion reunion, as he is still a few games away from starting for the Tykes. Lloyd Isgrove has not trained after picking up a calf injury.
Antony Coggins has refereed five League One games this season and has issued 26 yellow cards. He has also handed out one red card and awarded two penalties.

Please note that there is no junior category available for matchday purchase. Any supporters that were previously eligible for juvenile tickets will be charged the full concessions rate if they are buying on the day at Oakwell.
