What Threats Do The Brewers Pose?

25 October 2019

Blackpool make the trip to Staffordshire on Saturday to take on Nigel Clough’s Burton Albion side in Sky Bet League One.

The Brewers currently sit in 13th position in the league table, three places below Blackpool, having had a mixed bag of results so far this campaign.

Last Three Results:

  • 22 October – Burton Albion 1-0 AFC Wimbledon
  • 19 October – Fleetwood Town 4-1 Burton Albion
  • 5 October – MK Dons 0-3 Burton Albion

Star Man: Liam Boyce

Signed from Scottish side Ross County in June 2017, Boyce has scored six goals in all competitions so far this campaign. The forward has also played 19 times for his native Northern Ireland, scoring a single goal against New Zealand back in 2017.

Familiar Face: Colin Daniel

Ex-Seasider Colin Daniel now plies his trade at the Pirelli Stadium, having signed for Burton back in January of this year.

The defender was brought to Bloomfield Road by Gary Bowyer back in 2016 and made 78 appearances for Blackpool before moving on to Peterborough United two years later.
