Opposition: Burton Albion find themselves on the same number of points as Rovers heading into the game, but through a different run of form. Whilst the Gas have succeeded at home, the Brewers have been very good on the road, but have only managed the one point in three games at home. However, Rovers' opposition are free-scoring, with Scott Fraser and Liam Boyce having already notched up hat-tricks this season. The Brewers most eye-catching summer signing, Oliver Šarkić, a former Benfica player who signed on a free from Leeds United is yet to score or assist so far this campaign.


Last Encounter: The Gas have only ever played the Brewers a total of eight times, but in that time the fixture has been a mixed bag for Rovers, with three wins, two draws and three loses. The most notable result was an impressive 7-1 victory back in 2012 when the two sides met in League Two. The last game between the two sides played out as a 0-0 draw.
