BURTON Albion return to home soil tomorrow night when they take on Accrington Stanley under the lights of the Pirelli Stadium (7.45pm kick-off).
The Brewers come into the game after suffering back-to-back defeats, losing 1-0 away at MK Dons last Saturday.
Accrington Stanley, like Albion have also suffered two defeats in a row, eventually losing 3-2 despite a valiant comeback effort on Saturday against Sheffield Wednesday.
HEAD 2 HEAD
The two sides have faced off 19 times over Albion's time in the EFL, with the Brewers edging the head-to-head record with eight games won in comparison to Stanley’s six. Five of these games have ended all square.
A seven-goal thriller was played out between the two sides in March 2019 when Albion ran out 5-2 victors at the Pirelli Stadium.
The Brewers found themselves 2-0 down after 40 minutes before Scott Fraser pulled one back for the Brewers before the half. A dominant second half display saw goals from Kyle McFadzean, David Templeton and a Lucas Akins double secure a huge win.
BREWERS TEAM NEWS
The Brewers will be without Jacob Maddox for the visit of Accrington Stanley due to a hamstring problem suffered in last weekend's defeat to MK Dons. Michael Mancienne and Deji Oshilaja will also be unavailable due to suspension while Jonny Smith returns to the squad after his own ban.
ACCRINGTON STANLEY TEAM NEWS
No new injuries have been reported for Accrington Stanley ahead of their visit to the Pirelli Stadium.
