BURTON Albion's Sunday fixture with Portsmouth will be their 2014-15 'Kick it Out' match to combat discrimination in football.

The match is part of Kick it Out's season of action, introduced last year to spread the organisation's work across the year, rather than just focus on one week on October.

Players from both Burton and Portsmouth will wear Kick it Out T-shirts before the match and will help distribute promotional materials highlighting the work of the anti-bigotry campaign.

Albion chairman Ben Robinson said: "Football is unique in the way it brings people together from all ethnic backgrounds, genders, ages and abilities.

"Burton Albion are big supporters of the principles of the Kick it Out campaign and the work they carry out to eradicate discrimination from our sport.

"We take any necessary steps to remove discrimination from football and we hope supporters of both clubs will join us in sending that message at Sunday's game."
