MATCH PREVIEW - MORECAMBE (A)

1 April 2022

The Brewers return to action for the first time in two weeks tomorrow to take on Morecambe at the Mazuma Stadium.

Albion will head to Morecambe for the first league match in a fortnight after last week’s home tie against Wigan Athletic was rearraged due to International call ups.

FORM GUIDE

Both sides come into the game looking to put an unwanted period behind them. Morecambe are without a win in their last 12 games while the Brewers come into the match off the back of a 2-0 loss to Charlton Athletic at the Valley two weeks ago.

 

HEAD 2 HEAD

The two sides have faced off a total of 14 times since Burton’s promotion to the EFL, with the Brewers winning on eight occasions. Morecambe have got the better of Albion four times while there have only been two draws in this fixture.

Albion are unbeaten in the last three games against the Shrimps, with the the most recent coming in October of last year. Burton secured a 3-2 victory at the Pirelli Stadium courtesy of Conor Shaughnessy and a Tom O’Connor brace.

 

BREWERS TEAM NEWS

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink confirmed there are no new injuries to his squad since the international break.

 

MORECAMBE TEAM NEWS

Morecambe Manager Derek Adams labelled tomorrow’s fixture as a ‘must win’ game for his side. With the Shrimps sitting inside the relegation zone of Sky Bet League One, Adams said they must go into every game targeting maximum points.

“There’s not a game we can go into and think we can play for a draw, we have to win the game, the three points are vital at this stage of the season.”

 

MATCH OFFICIALS

The referee for tomorrow’s fixture will be Paul Howard, who will be assisted by Christopher Ward and Anthony Moore. The Fourth Official for the match will be James Devine.
