Burton Albion Preview

28 July 2017

Town welcome Burton to the Montgomery Waters Stadium for our f

It's difficult not to feel respect for what Burton Albion have done since being promoted ahead of us a few seasons ago. Before they started their first season in League One I thought they'd struggle, when they performed so well that season I thought it wouldn't last and when they won promotion to the Championship I thought they'd be back in League One the next season. This sort of thinking could mark me out as an idiot but I prefer to think that Burton have defied the conventional wisdom and expectation.
 
Burton are the fourth Championship team we will have played this pre-season and so far we've dome well in terms of results and performances, winning all three. However, with the season very close to starting, they should be closer to peak fitness and should give us a game.
 
The Brewers have quietly gone about their business this closed season, picking up some handy players for next season. Most recently they've signed Nigerian International midfielder Hope Akpan from Blackburn. Originally an Everton trainee, Akpan had to move one step backwards at Crawley Town, to take two forward by moving to Reading and later Blackburn.  On moving to Burton Hope describes himself as an energetic midfielder able to win the ball.
 
In June Burton broke their transfer record to sign Liam Boyce from Ross County. The exact fee wasn't released but it broke the £300,000 record, which was paid last season, also to Ross County for Jackson Irvine 12 months ago. Irvine certainly impressed last season so you can’t blame Burton for going back for another midfielder. Boyce started his career in his native Ireland with Cliftonville, had a brief flirtation with Werder Bremen (3 games) before moving back to Cliftonville in 2012. In both his spells with the Belfast club he was prolific in front of goal. His first spell there saw him score18 times in 52 games, his second spell he scored an incredible 51 in 85 games. In 2014 he moved to Ross County and scorerd at a similar rate winning him the Scottish Premier League Golden boot for last season with 23 goals. 
 
Prediction
I think this should be our toughest test at home before the season starts, mainly because our opposition is closer to match fitness. Having said that, so are we and we've been pretty good at home so far. I'd quite like to see us record another clean sheet before the start of the season so a 0-0 would be fine, a one or two nil win would be lovely. However, each time I have forecast a draw this pre-season so I'll keep doing that until the sequence is broken.
 
Shrewsbury Town 2-2 Burton Albion

Chloe Lloyd reports from the Montgomery Waters Meadow

A second half Shrewsbury penalty dispatched by Shaun Whalley was enough to see off 10 man Championship outfit Burton Albion at Montgomery Waters Meadow.

Shrewsbury faced Championship side Burton Albion in their final preparation match before the league campaign beginsb next weekend. The pre-season friendly coincided with the annual Open Day which provided great entertainment for all ages.

The opening exchanges saw both teams looking to pass the ball and settle into the game. It was, however, the Brewers who had the first opportunity on goal with a deflected Lloyd Dyer catching the Shrewsbury defence, apart from goalkeeper Henderson who dealt with the situation,  off guard.

Shrewsbury responded with increased intensity going forwards. A low Alex Rodman cross from the edge of the 6 yard box strayed wide with the chance gone begging after only requiring a simple tap in.

The first half was a fiery encounter. A poor tackle on Abu Ogogo by Albion striker Marvin Sordell saw referee Rob Lewis no other option but to show the striker a straight red card. The Salop captain retaliated after the poor tackle, but escaped with a yellow.

A few minutes later saw Burton's record signing Liam Boyce stay down in agony after challenging for the ball with Toto Nsiala. The former Ross County centre forward required lengthy treatment and left the field of play via stretcher.

With very little goal mouth action from both Salop and 10-man Albion in the first half, the main talking point continued to feature around the heated challenges. Out of the two goalkeepers, Salop 'keeper Henderson was the busiest. This was, however, only claiming crosses, which he completed more than comfortably.

HALF TIME: Shrewsbury Town 0-0 Burton Albion

The half time break brought one change for the home side. Captain Abu Ogogo, also on a yellow card, was replaced by Bryn Morris with the Captains armband being given to Matt Sadler.

On 58 minutes Shrewsbury's Nsiala was caught on the ball by the pacy Akins just outside the penalty area. Burton's number 7 broke into the box and just as he was about to pull the trigger, Nsiala got back to him, outmuscling the Albion player and clearing the ball away to safety.

Just before the 70 minute mark the deadlock was nearly broken. A Whalley corner was aimed at substitute Lenell John-Lewis. The 28 year old was strong at the back post, beating his marker to head the ball down to fellow substitute Louis Dodds. Dodds took his shot on the turn from inside the 6 yard area and saw his right footed shot hammer against the post and ricochet out for a Burton goal kick.

With 6 minutes to play Whalley latched on to a Buxton mistake and the Albion keeper hacked down the Shrewsbury man inside the box. With no hesitation ref Rob Lewis blew his whistle and pointed to the spot, awarding Salop their second spot kick of pre-season. After winning the penalty, Whalley claimed the penalty as his own and dispatched the ball into the centre of the goal with Albion 'keeper Bywater diving left to put the Shrews a goal up.

Almost straight from the restart, a long ball up to John-Lewis was held up well by the big striker and he payed the ball off to Dodds. The attacking midfielder made some neat, skilful touches to give himself room before firing a shot narrowly wide.

That was to be the last of the goal mouth action, with Shrewsbury winning their final pre-season game with another win against Championship opposition. It finished a good work out for both sides, with plenty for both managers to ponder ahead of the opening fixture next weekend. The Salop fans left the Montgomery Waters Meadow with handfuls of optimising as the season quickly approaches.

FULL TIME: Shrewsbury Town 1-0 Burton Albion
