THE Brewers return to League One action with an away trip to Fleetwood Town tomorrow (kick off 3pm).
HEAD 2 HEAD
The Brewers lost both games to Fleetwood last season by the same scoreline 1-0. The away fixture in December 2018 was played in atrocious weather with gale force winds, driving rain and freezing temperatures that made it nearly impossible to play football. A Ched Evans penalty separated the sides. In the return at the Pirelli in February 2019, a frustrating game saw the visitors head back to the Fylde coast with all three points after Ashley Nadesan's 57th minutes strike settled the match.
BREWERS TEAM NEWS
Albion expect to be without Stephen Quinn (knee) and John Brayford (calf) but Jake Buxton (ribs) came through a Birmingham Senior Cup tie at Hednesford and will be in the squad.
Joey Barton won his first Manager of the Month award after Fleetwood Town took 10 points from four games in September in League One. The curse of the Manager of the Month award promptly kicked in with Fleetwood then losing their first game in October – but it was a narrow 1-0 defeat to leaders Ipswich. Like the Brewers, they haven’t played a League game since October 5 due to the international break.
