ON THIS DATE (JANUARY 24):
On this date in 2015 the Brewers travelled to Bootham Crescent for a 1-1 draw in League Two. A crowd of 3,398 saw Emile Sinclair give York City a 70th minute lead, before Adam McGurk scored a point winning 87th-minute equaliser, on his 26th birthday.
Altrincham were the visitors to the Pirelli Stadium on this date in 2009. The Nationwide Conference encounter was Roy McFarland’s first home game in charge of the Brewers, who were looking for a 14th consecutive league victory. A crowd of 2,124 saw Joe McNeill give the Cheshire side a 24th-minute lead. Shaun Harrad equalised in the 52nd minute as the winning run was halted.
It was another Nationwide Conference game in 2006 when Albion hosted Halifax Town. A crowd of 1,540 saw Kris Taylor give Burton an 8th minute lead. However a John Grant goal right on the stroke of half time, and a 76th minute Martin Foster penalty earned the Yorkshire side all 3 points.
