Burton Albion vs Barnsley
England League Championship
Date: Saturday, 5th November 2016,
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Pirelli Stadium, Burton upon Trent.
Burton are finding life in the Championship rather difficult. But the club under the guidance of manager Nigel Clough will push on. They are currently in 18th place and have played some good football but inconsistency has been a key in their current position.
The club though have a good home record where they would be 11th in the league based on home results. They have lost just twice and have just 1 defeat in their past five home games and are currently on a three game unbeaten streak at Pirelli Stadium.
Barnsley are in 12th place and the fans will hope that the club have turned a corner after having a horrific piece of form in late September and October where the club lost 3 games in a row. But since then they have won and drawn and are trying to lay down foundations to get higher in the league and crack into the top 10.
Barnsley have won 3 of their last five away matches and have had some impressive results beating Wolves 4-0 and Brentford 2-0 in recent weeks.
