Burton Albion host Fleetwood Town at The Pirelli Stadium, just a few days after securing their stay in League One for at least another year. 

The visitors are also confirmed to be staying in the league, and they've been relatively good since the departure of Joey Barton, where the experienced Simon Grayson came in to replace him. 

With not too much riding on the game, it could still be a great game, with both sides aiming for the strongest finishes to the season possible. 

  • Team news

With Burton now safe, Jimmy Floyd Haselbaink could make changes here and try something different with the season coming to an end. The Dutchman has a full squad to choose.

Likewise for Fleetwood, they have a full squad to choose from other than long term absentee goalkeeper Joel Coleman.

  • Predicted lineups 

Burton Albion - 4-2-3-1 

Garratt; Hamer, Bostwick, Carter, Brayford; Clare, Mancienne; Akins, Edwards, Powell; Hemmings.

Fleetwood Town - 4-2-3-1 

Leutwiller; Edwards, Connolly, Mulgrew, Andrew; Finley, Rossiter; Camps, Morris, Burns, Madden.

  • Ones to watch 

 Ryan Edwards - Burton Albion

Ryan Edwards has been one of the biggest influences in the Brewers' resurgence leading to them staying up. 

The Australian covers every blade of grass in the midfield week in week out, 

He has never scored a goal for Albion as of yet, but he has came close recently. Could this be the game he gets his first?

Charlie Mulgrew - Fleetwood Town

The 35-year-old has certainly been around the block. The Scotland international finds himself now at the heart of a strong Cod Army defence. 

A rock at the back in a playing career that spans over 15 years.

He's certainly going to give the Burton front men a run for their money. 

  • Previous meeting 

When the sides met back in September, Fleetwood won 2-1 with Paddy Madden scoring the winning goal. 

Callum Camps opened the scoring before John Brayford equalised.

  • How to watch

Due to current restrictions in the UK, there will be no fans in attendance at The Pirelli. However, the game is available to watch on iFollow. The kick-off is at 19:00 BST.
