Stat pack: Burton v Villa

September 26, 2017

Here you’ll find the best of our bitesize stats ahead of our trip to Burton Albion.

Discover why our attack will be relishing taking on the Brewers, how Steve Bruce stacks up against Nigel Clough and why Burton means maximum attendance from Villans.

Not-so-familiar faces

Tuesday's game will be only the third between Burton and Villa in history – the only other meetings came in the Championship last season.

Attack, attack, attack

Having scored five goals in their last two Championship matches, it's good news for Villa's attacking players ahead of the game – Burton have only kept one clean sheet in their last 19 home league games.

Unbeatable Brucie

Steve Bruce has never lost out in a game to opposite manager Nigel Clough – winning four times and drawing once against the Brewers boss.

Food for thought

Nearly all of Burton's Championship goals have come at home this term – 83 per cent of them, to be exact. 

They've scored just once on the road.

Hottest ticket in town

Both our home and away ticket allocations for Burton sold out last season, and our travelling support have once again snapped up every available ticket for tonight's encounter.

Corner turned?

Only table-toppers Leeds United and Sheffield United have taken more points in their last six Championship matches than Villa. 

However, both of those teams have been beaten in that time – the claret and blues have not.
