It might well be tougher than we think it should be. I saw one of their games a few weeks back on the tellybox and they played some really decent stuff. I've always liked Lloyd Dyer for them. He's not a world beater but he's very direct and good at what he does. I think we'll edge it though, 1-2, Kodjia and Davis.

Tickets are on general sale and can be bought easily from the ticket office.

I have never seen such a large contingent of away fans gathered together in the home end before and so open about it, with the home fans or stewards not really minding.

I expect the same tomorrow will probably happen if they've not sold out.

I know you have to go with form and BA are solid at home and were absolute pish away... but its burton Albion ffs. Hopefully weve hit our straps as the cricketers say, and the juggernaut rolls on.

0-2

Website saying it is a restricted fixture?

The problem with this one is that a draw would've been a decent result if we'd not dropped points at home to Boro and Brentford but now we really do need to win to keep ourselves in sight of the top 3.

For me the worst two dropped points at home were Hull and Boro. We didn't really deserve anything from the Brentford game.

Indeed, but if you've said we'd win 1 and draw 2 of those 3 before the season started most people would've expected the win to be Brentford.  On top of that if we win these next 2 a draw with Wolves will be a decent result, if we don't get 6 points then that one becomes a must win to close the gap.

Really tough game this, Burton played 5-4-1 on Saturday although they were away but I don't expect them to play any differently as survival is their aim.
We really struggle against sides like this and we don't need a defensive midfielder like Whelan to play, only a piece of individual flair will win this game.

Fully expect a dour 0-0 draw, try not to fall asleep.

A game that we could equally win or lose, so 1-1 for me.

Same team as Saturday but change Whelan for either Lansbury or Onomah - and move the fecking ball quicker
