BURTON Albion return to midweek action in Sky Bet League One, travelling to South-Yorkshire to take on Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow night (7.45pm kick-off).
The fixture was originally scheduled for Boxing Day of last year but was rearranged due to coronavirus complications.
The Brewers head into the clash at Hillsborough after a 2-0 home defeat to Shrewsbury Town on Saturday. Despite being without a win in three, Albion’s last away trip almost resulted in a hard earned three points at the Stadium of Light last week. A late Sunderland equaliser came between Burton and victory on the road on this occasion.
Since the last meeting between the sides just under a month ago, Wednesday have only recorded one loss in that time. Defeat at table toppers Rotherham United was the only thing coming in the way of a perfect run since the Owls visited the Pirelli Stadium.
HEAD 2 HEAD
The game will only be the sixth time the two sides have faced off since the Brewers ascendency to the EFL. Albion had an unbeaten record over Sheffield Wednesday in competitive league games until the last meeting just over a month ago, with the Owls securing a 2-0 at the Pirelli Stadium.
Burton fans will have fond memories of the club’s last away match at Sheffield Wednesday. A 3-0 away victory in the Sky Bet Championship courtesy of Tom Flannagan, Lloyd Dyer and Tom Naylor gave Brewers fans a day to remember in South-Yorkshire.
