HEAD 2 HEAD
Burton and Barnsley’s footballing relationship has been relatively short but not so sweet for the Brewers, their first fixture coming in 2014. In the eight fixtures they’ve met one another, Albion have accumulated one victory, a 2-1 success at Oakwell last February. The Tykes have generally taken the upper hand, holding three triumphs and a further four draws. Just two months ago, the pair played out a 0-0 draw in their previous encounter.

An almost fully-fledged Albion squad will be in selection, the only major injury doubt being David Templeton, who damaged his knee against Accrington Stanley. Stephen Quinn had been off through a minor illness but should be fit to face Barnsley.
BARNSLEY TEAM NEWS
Left-back Dani Pinillos could feature in Daniel Stendel’s squad, an eye injury side lining the Spaniard for three games. The decision to select Pinillos from the start will come down to performances in training, with Ben Williams in direct competition for the position. OFFICALS

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.
ROTARY CLUB SANDWICH BOARD PARADE
At the Barnsley game today, collecting funds to support good causes in the town are Burton Rotary Club. Volunteers will be asking fans to donate cash so please give generously to support this local charity group.
This year the donations are going to the Burton Rotary Club and the Midlands Air Ambulance Service.
The Air Ambulance people will also be at the Pirelli bringing a mock up helicopter that you may have chance to look around.
In addition, at half-time, there will be a parade of sandwich boards. These boards have all been sponsored by local companies.
Please show your support for the volunteers as they take to the pitch for the parade.
