Fleetwood Town are set to face Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium on Tuesday 4 October, and we have all you need to know ahead of the 7:45pm kick-off in our match preview.
Fixture: Burton Albion v Fleetwood Town
Competition: Sky Bet League One
Date: Tuesday 4 October 2022
Venue: Pirelli Stadium, Princess Way, Burton upon Trent, DE13 0AR
After an eventful international break, which saw multiple players head out to their respective countries to play at various levels of competitions, Town were back at home on Saturday as they hosted recently relegated side Barnsley at Highbury.
In a game of few chances, it looked destined to be a goalless draw on the day as both sides headed into added time at the end of the clash level, but it wasn’t meant to be as substitute Jack Aitchison managed to get his head on a cross with seconds to go to grab the decisive goal in the clash.
The last league outing before that was when Charlton Athletic came to town and left with a point. Morton broke the deadlock a half-hour into the game, but Miles Leaburn came off the bench for the visitors and levelled things up just before the end.
The Yellows have turned their season’s form around in the last couple of weeks as they have managed to win three of their last four games in all competitions, with the last win ending 3-2 at home against Forest Green Rovers.
It was a dominant performance from Victor Adeboyejo as he broke the deadlock just six minutes in before goals from Reece Brown and Connor Wickham meant Burton would fall behind with 20 minutes to go. However, a late brace from Burton’s number 14 – completing his hat-trick – meant they would win out at the Pirelli.
Before that was an unfortunate loss to Shrewsbury Town away from home as, even though Adeboyejo netted another goal in this one, it was Ryan Bowman’s effort that secured all three points for the home side in a game that Burton dominated the stats.
SCOTT BROWN AFTER THE BARNSLEY RESULT
Head coach Scott Brown spoke to the press after his side narrowly lost out to Barnsley at Highbury on Saturday afternoon – here’s what he had to say:
“As an overall performance from the lads, they worked extremely hard, and they always try to listen at half-time. I thought their understanding of the shape was very good.
“As I said to the lads, it’s horrible losing last minute but they gave everything with their effort, they always give us 100%, but final third, a little bit of quality was maybe what we were missing today. We had a couple of good chances but neither of them could hit the back of the net.
“We’ve got a lot of injuries and a lot of games coming up but for us as a team, we need to make sure we’re all fit for the game on Tuesday.”
