MATCH PREVIEW - SUNDERLAND (A)

21 February 2022

THE Brewers will make the trip to the North East in the second of back-to-back away games, taking on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light tomorrow night. (7.45pm kick-off).

FORM GUIDE

Albion come into tomorrow’s game looking to put Saturday’s 3-0 away defeat to Ipswich behind. The Brewers have one win in the last five game, with the most recent being an impressive 3-1 victory over Bolton Wanderers just a week ago.

The hosts are also ging through a bit of a rough patch in their season, without a win in their last five games. A heavy defeat to Bolton saw the dismissal of former manager Lee Johnson, who was replaced by Alex Neil just last Saturday.

HEAD 2 HEAD

The two sides have faced off a total of eight times competitively since Albion made their first appearance in the EFL. The Brewers have won half of these games, drawing two and losing two to the Black Cats.

In the reverse fixture at the Pirelli earlier on in this campaign, Burton took all three points courtesy of Jonny Smith’s stunning curling effort in a 1-0 victory.

BREWERS TEAM NEWS

Assistant Manager Dino Maamria confirmed that Louis Moult and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson are being assessed and could return to the squad after missing the loss at Portman Road through injury. Maamria also confirmed Ciaran Gilligan could miss two-three weeks with a hamstring injury.
