Burton Albion were in action on Tuesday night, and currently sit on nine points and one place above Fleetwood Town in the Sky Bet League One standings. In midweek, they beat Port Vale 3-2 at Vale Park, with three different goal scorers. Bez Lubala opened the scoring in the 11th minute, with Vale grabbing an equaliser just before half-time.

In the second half, Albion picked up the tempo and scored two goals within ten minutes. The first was scored by Steve Seddon with Kwadwo Baah bagging just after the hour mark. The hosts Vale did score four minute from time, but failed to gain a point on home soil.

Burton didn't have the best start to the season, failing to score any goals in their first three matches in all competitions. An opening day 2-0 defeat away at fellow Fylde Coast side Blackpool was followed by a 2-0 defeat to Leicester in the cup, and then a 3-0 defeat away at Derby County.

With chance now to claim out of the bottom four, Burton will be hoping to pick up their first home win of the new campaign, with Fleetwood - the visitors - looking for their first league victory of the season and second in all competitions.



Manager Lee Johnson spoke to the press on Thursday afternoon at Poolfoot Farm, and here’s what he had to say on the game this weekend:

"We know it's a tight pitch at Burton and I know how much of a role our supporters can play in the game by giving us that strength shooting towards them.

"Burton are a strong and physical side, who like to play direct, but like any side in this division, they have their weaknesses so it's up to us to capitalise on those on Saturday.

"Having had one game in charge, I am trying to focus the lads on the process and not the outcome. In this league, you can put three wins together quickly and when I was at Barnsley we were bottom of the league and then got promoted so it is possible from the position we are in.

"There are 117 points to play for and it's important that we as a group battle for every single one of those points."

Match Reports

Report: Town share the spoils with Burton away from home

23 September 2023

Fleetwood Town were held to a 1-1 draw at the Pirelli Stadium by Burton Albion in their latest Sky Bet League One clash on Saturday afternoon.

Both goals in the clash came in the first half as Joe Powell netted the opener 17 minutes in at the second time of asking, after Jay Lynch saved his penalty seconds earlier, with Junior Quitirna producing a moment of magic minutes later to level up the score line.

It was Fleetwood who had the first effort of the game and it was right from the off as Jack Marriott found himself with a yard of space inside the Burton box two minutes in, but his effort on goal was well blocked and cleared by the home defence.

It was heartbreak on the debut of Ben Heneghan at the quarter-hour mark as he brought down Mark Helm in the box to give away a penalty, which was saved by Jay Lynch, but the follow-up from Powell found the back of the net to open the scoring.

That lead, however, only lasted three minutes as a majestic strike from range by Quitirna levelled up the score to 1-1 leaving everyone stunned as the winger cut inside from the left and curled his effort from the edge into the top right of Max Crocombe’s goal.

Town could have put themselves in the lead 26 minutes in as Ryan Broom played a deep cross into the home box, after a corner, but Heneghan’s header went wide of the far post, with Promise Omochere forcing a save soon after.

As half-time was edging closer, both sides looked to try and take the lead with Deji Oshilaja and Helm both seeing their shots blocked or saved, with Toto Nsiala coming the closest when he forced a diving save from Crocombe soon before the break.

After the restart, it was all Fleetwood for the first 15 minutes as Marriott had a good opportunity to earn the lead, but it flew over the bar before Broom broke into the box and saw the same outcome not long after.

Chances came at a premium after this point even though both sides needed a breakthrough, with Quitirna coming close with the next effort around the hour mark when he worked a yard outside the box and fired high and wide of the target.

As the minutes flew by, both sides tried to find a breakthrough, but there wasn’t one to be had, it wasn’t all bad though as when the referee marked the end of the game with a blow of his whistle, the losing streak of Fleetwood had come to an end.

Burton XI: Crocombe (GK), Seddon, Oshilaja (C), Hughes, Powell, Moon (Sweeney 32’), Lubala, Helm (Chauke 63’), Carayol (Walker 63’), Baah (Gordon 82’), Hamer.

Unused subs: Blackman (GK), Caprice, Gilligan.

Town XI: Lynch (GK), Johnston (C), Lawal, Tshimanga (Stockley 59’), Mayor, Broom (Simons 76’), Marriott, Quitirna, Heneghan, Omochere (Patterson 70’), Nsiala.

Unused subs: McMullan (GK), Robertson, Holgate, Hayes.
