📝 Match Preview: Burton Albion (A)

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's match

2 September 2023

The Grecians are back on the road this Saturday to take on Burton Albion at the Pirelli Stadium in EFL League One action, 3pm.

City will be looking to build on a fantastic start to the season which has left them in second place after five league matches.

Saturday's late 2-1 win over Reading was City's third win in the League of the season and this was followed up with a penalty shootout win over Stevenage on Tuesday night to book a Carabao Cup third round tie against Premier League side Luton Town.

The Brewers have had a tough start to the season, currently sitting 22nd in the Leauge and winless. However they have picked up two strong points against Wycombe Wanderers and Bolton Wanderers.

The Pirelli Stadium was opened in 2005. The ground was built on the former site of the Pirelli UK Tyres Ltd Sports & Social Club, and having had the land donated to the club by Pirelli, in return for naming rights the ground cost £7.2 million to build.

The ground has seen minor capacity changes since its construction, and the current capacity stands at 6,912, with 2,034 being seated in the South (Main) Stand. The current record attendance for the stadium stands at 6,746 for an EFL Championship match against nearby Derby County.

How to get there

By Car


The Pirelli Stadium is located just off the A38. Exit the A38 at the Clay Mills junction and follow Derby Road (A5121) until you reach the second island. Take a right turn at the island and then right again into the car park.

By Train

Burton Railway Station is around a mile and a half away from the Pirelli Stadium. As you come out of the station turn left and go down the hill. Turn right into Derby Street and from there it is a straight road up to the stadium. It should take about 25 minutes to walk.

The train journey is easy from Exeter and takes around 3 hours 20 mins to four hours with a maximum of one change.
