📝 Match Preview: Burton Albion (H)

All you need to know about Saturday

15 March 2024

Exeter City are back in action at the Park on Saturday to take on Burton Albion in a 3pm kick-off.

The Grecians will be looking to build on a strong week where they picked up four points from games against Bolton Wanderers and Shrewsbury Town when they welcome the Brewers to SJP.

Burton come into the match on the back of a narrow 2-1 defeat to League leaders Portsmouth, which extended their winless run to five matches, which has left them in 19th place in the league but five points clear of the relegation zone.

As always your incredible support makes a huge difference at the Park, so grab your tickets early and save time and money in advance.

Up the City!

Kevin Nicholson's Thoughts

Ahead of the match, City's assistant manager Kevin Nicholson has given his thoughts on the match.

"Burton will be a tough nut to crack and they are fighting for their life," Nicho said.

"They've got some experienced players and they have a new manager in who has picked up some good results - when they've got something they can hold onto and when they are in the game they are particularly difficult to play against, they don't give much away and they'll sit deep.

"They will make it difficult for us and they are good at set plays and long throws that can get into our box from pretty much anywhere in our half.

"The task for us is to meet the physical challenge they will present."
