BURTON Albion are back in Emirates FA Cup action with an away First Round tie at League Two Salford City tomorrow (kick off 3pm). Take a read of our match preview below.
HEAD 2 HEAD
This is the first-ever meeting between the two clubs and comes after Salford joined the EFL ranks last season after earning promotion from the National League. Albion avoided Salford in our non-league days due to the Ammies spending the bulk of their recent history (1982 to 2010) in the North West Counties League. It has been a meteoric rise since then.
BURTON ALBION TEAM NEWS
Manager Nigel Clough will be waiting on fitness reports on Richard Nartey (hamstring), Reece Hutchinson (hip flexor) and David Templeton (ankle). Hutchinson missed the trip to Doncaster while Templeton and Nartey were both substituted before the second half due to their injuries.
VIEW FROM THE SALFORD CAMP
Salford should be in good spirits after beating Newport away 2-1 on November 2 to move up to 11th in the League Two table.
They owe the three points to keeper Mark Howard who denied Newport a point with a late penalty save from Tristan Abrahams.
Salford went ahead through Cameron Burgess just before half-time but Newport levelled in stoppage time to make it 1-1 at the break
Lois Maynard's header put Salford back in front, but they needed that penalty save to secure the win.
Alan Young will be the man in the middle for the game at the Peninsula Stadium. The assistants will be David Plowright and Ian Dudley
In his 15 games so far this season, Mr Young has shown 62 yellow cards at an average of just over four per game. He has not shown any red cards. He was in charge when we lost 2-1 at Tranmere on September 21 handing out five yellow cards
