Burton sit just 5 points and 3 places behind us and have struggled against teams above them, yet put away the teams below them no problem - apart from Cambridge today which ended 2 all - so it's no surprise they're mid table.
Since signing up Gassam Adahme from Norwich, they've tweaked their system to a slightly more adventurous 4312 (from 4321) to facilitate the young Moroccan striker who is pacy, skilful but delivering not too much end product as yet.
They have decent players throughout the team and are tidy defensively but again I think this is all about us - if we play to our ability and Evatt doesn't tweak the team too much, we should have enough to take the points.
We need this and I think we'll scrape it 1 - 2.
Just been looking at the Pirelli pitch and it's a bog with rough patches all over the place - not really condusive to free flowing football. Add to that the fact that Burton have been fielding 6 out-and-out defenders in recent games, and we can expect a war of attrition on Tuesday night. Hopefully Evatt will pick a team better suited for trench warfare
