BURTON Albion will be looking to make it three wins on the spin when Oxford United are the visitors to the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday (kick off 3pm).
The Brewers beat Morecambe at home 3-2 last Saturday and then went to Fleetwood and came back with another three points after a 1-0 success. Oxford beat Shrewsbury 2-0 last time out and before that lost 3-1 to Plymouth – their only defeat in the last six games. Oxford eliminated the Brewers from the Carabao Cup this season.
MATCH Sponsors – Burton Albion Community Trust
Matt Hancock, BACT Head of Community said: “We are delighted to be Match sponsors during a very important week for the charity which has seen the launch of our new three-year strategy which sets out ambitious new aims for us. The game also sees the start of our new-look Family Zone over on the 3G pitch and gives us an opportunity to put girls’ and women’s football in the spotlight. Burton Albion is a fantastic club that has been at the forefront of the local pandemic response, and we have a lot to be proud of and to celebrate so thanks to all of our partners, sponsors, staff and volunteers who make it all possible.”
Enjoying hospitality are the Player Sponsors of Lucas Akins, Particle Technology. The firm is one of the UK's leading and most respected particle testing and manufacturing companies and FFS Associates who are Michael Bostwick’s Player Sponsors. FFS offers forward thinking financial strategy and solutions.
Happy 70th birthday to Gus Stuart who is celebrating in the Albion Suite with his family.

The Family Zone will feature music, lots of games and activities, teas and coffees and on Saturday ahead of the Brewers home game with Oxford, a chance to meet two Brewers first team players – Louis Moult and John Brayford.
Visitors to the Family Zone will be encouraged to grab an ‘honesty flag’ to use during the game to cheer on Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s team which we ask you to return after the match.
