WITH the first of back-to-back away games for the Brewers this week, we travel to AFC Wimbledon tomorrow for a 7.45pm kick-off in south-west London. Our match preview will give you all the information you need to know.
HEAD 2 HEAD
Our first game against the Wombles this season was a 1-0 home win on the 22 October 2019. An unusual goal from David Templeton - unusual in that it wasn’t a screamer from outside the box - saw the Brewers clinch all three points at the Pirelli.
Burton Albion’s league meetings with the club date back to the 2011-12 season, when AFC Wimbledon first made it back to the Football League in their new guise. The Brewers have a good record against the Wombles, winning five, drawing three and losing three.
Notable meetings between the sides include a 6-2 victory for the Brewers on the 21 August 2012 at the Pirelli Stadium.

Brewers manager Nigel Clough says he is hopeful of having Kieran Wallace and Nathan Broadhead back, with Reece Hutchinson also making progress from injury:
“Kieran Wallace should be back this week, Reece Hutchinson is not far away and Nathan Broadhead could be back this week."
AFC WIMBLEDON NEWS
AFC Wimbledon come into the fixture from a ten-day break, following their Saturday off last weekend.
Their previous result was a 1-0 home win against Peterborough United, only their third game this calendar year. They have won seven points in their last six games, with two wins and a draw since a 1-0 loss to Tranmere Rovers on the 21 December 2019.
The man in the middle for tomorrow’s match will be John Busby. Running the lines will be Conor Farrell and Paul Lister, with the Fourth Official set to be Anthony Da Costa.
Busby has officiated the Brewers previously this season, during our 2-0 win over AFC Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup Third Round at the Pirelli Stadium. He has officiated 12 matches in League One this season, issuing 46 yellow cards, one of which was converted to a red, and also awarding two penalties.
