BURTON Albion travel to Lancashire to take on Accrington Stanley at the Wham Stadium for our Good Friday fixture tomorrow afternoon (3pm kick-off).
Albion return to away action after two consecutive home matches, both ending in 0-0 draws with promotion-chasing Plymouth Argyle and Wigan Athletic.
Despite being without a win in four, the Brewers come into the game off the back of two clean sheets, the most recent coming in a solid performance against league leaders Wigan Athletic.
Accrington ended a run of five games without victory last time out. They left it late to snatch a 2-1 win away at Fleetwood Town last Saturday.
HEAD 2 HEAD
Burton Albion edge the record when it comes to competitive head-to-head fixtures between the two. In the 20 meetings between the sides, Burton have won nine of these matches. Accrington have won on six occasions while there have been five draws in this match-up.
The Brewers put on a dominant display when the teams met at the Pirelli Stadium earlier this season. Two goals each from Daniel Jebbison and Jonny Smith secured a convincing win over John Coleman’s side in November 2021.
