PREVIEW: BREWERS VS ACCRINGTON STANLEY

23 March 2019

THE Brewers are aiming to make it consecutive home wins when they face Accrington Stanley at the Pirelli Stadium (3PM kick-off).

HEAD 2 HEAD

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

In total, Albion and Stanley share five wins apiece in the EFL, with three draws in 2011 (1-1), 2013 (3-3) and 2018 (1-1).

 

BURTON ALBION TEAM NEWS

The Brewers have a fully-fit squad ahead of today’s game, although they will be without top goalscorer Liam Boyce, who is away on international duty with Northern Ireland.

That means that Albion will be forced into at least one change from the side that beat Blackpool 3-0 last Saturday.

 

ACCRINGTON STANLEY TEAM NEWS 

There will be no reunion with Dimitar Evtimov this afternoon, with the ex-Brewers keeper currently on international duty with the Bulgarian national side. 

On-loan forward Paul Smyth is also away, having joined up with Albion forward Liam Boyce in the Northern Ireland squad. 

Seamus Conneely could return from injury to feature in this afternoon’s game.

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.
