Burton Albion host Swindon Town, with both sides looking for a vital three points. 

With the season nearly wrapped up, a slip up at this stage could end tragically, with neither side safe from the drop yet with hard games still to come. 

The Robins have had an inconsistent run of form in the turn of the year, leading to them being dragged into the relegation battle. 

On the other hand, The Brewers went on a great run of form when Jimmy Floyd Haselbaink took over, eventually winning six games on the bounce. However, since the streak was broken the hosts are without a win in four. Although they're unbeaten away from home under the Haselbaink and Dino Maamria

  • Ones to watch 

Brett Pitman - Swindon Town

In recent years, Swindon have had a thing for signing vetrans.

Brett Pitman is one of the latest, signing for them last season. He was joined by Lee Camp this January.

Pitman is the Robins' top scorer this campaign with nine goals. It doesn't seem a lot, but Swindon share the goals out quite fairly across their team. 

The poacher can be sure to cause chaos on his day snooping in and around the penalty area, and might cause a problem for young Burton defender Hayden Carter.

  • Previous meetings

Swindon beat Burton in a six goal thriller last time out 4-2. This was back in September. 

  • How to watch
