Burton are flying high so Will Nigel keep things as they are or will he tinker? We on the other hand are starting to climb the table but it's very much a work in progress. The long term signings of Evina, Lund and Middleton (2 of which have come through our youth system) show things are heading in the right direction. We have sold out all our allocation but pay on the gate is still an option so expect a few more there tomorrow. Normally if we turn up in numbers the team fail to. Will we flop against the top or will Burton suffer Fergie time like Crewe?

Nigel won't change anything, he has already stated that. Will be a big welcome home for him at the Pirelli stadium and I'm sure that won't distract the team from the job in hand. Its going to be an interesting game looking at both teams style of play and the fact that confidence is high in both camps. More often than not Albion find a way to win the game and they keep on coming up with the goods.
Rovers will be a difficult opponent I'm sure, a good sized crowd(by our standards) and a good atmosphere gives all the ingredients for a great afternoons football. It will be close but I'm going for a one goal win for the Albion.
