MATCH PREVIEW | ACCRINGTON STANLEY (H)

24 February 2023

THE Brewers picked up another valuable three points away at Bristol Rovers last weekend and now return to the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday for a home game against Accrington Stanley (3pm kick off).

DID YOU KNOW?

John Coleman has been in charge of Accrington Stanley for more than 1,000 games in two spells dating back to 1999.

HEAD-TO-HEAD

The Brewers and Accrington have met 23 times since Albion were promoted to the Football League in 2009. The Brewers have a narrow edge on those encounters having won nine to Stanley’s seven with a further seven draws. Accrington did however win the last meeting between the clubs in the Papa Johns Trophy.

MINUTE’S APPLAUSE

There will be a minute’s applause before kick off to remember Burton Albion Director Phil Brown who recently passed away. There will be a tribute to Phil in the Matchday Brewer.

LEVEL PLAYING FIELD

Level Playing Field is the leading charity in England and Wales campaigning and advocating on behalf of disabled sports fans.

At the Accrington game we are supporting Level Playing Field’s 'Unite For Access' campaign which is a celebration of disabled fans, accessibility, and inclusion at sports venues. Look out for special activities at our Family Zone supporting Level Playing Field.

FAMILY ZONE

Our regular Family Zone will be back in operation for this game starting 90 minutes before kick-off and is open to home and away supporters.
