Burton Albion return to Championship action after the international break at in-form Bristol City tonight as they search for a first away win of the campaign.

The Brewers headed into the break on the back of successive 4-0 defeats at the Pirelli Stadium, but are unbeaten on the road since the loss at Leeds United on September 9.

The Robins, meanwhile, can move into the automatic promotion spots with victory at Ashton Gate - and they will be looking to avoid the manager and player of the month jinx, after Lee Johnson and Aden Flint won the prizes for September.

Nigel Clough, Connor Ripley and physio Nick Fenton look on

Nigel Clough is hopeful of having Ben Turner back for tonight's clash in defence, although John Brayford is likely to miss out through injury.

We'll have all the build-up and team news from the game, before bringing you minute-by-minute text commentary as we see if Burton can get their points tally ticking again.

Here's a round-up of that Clough reaction

If you’re still with us...

Bristol manager Lee Johnson has been chatting to us

I think it was the quality. It’s not something you can work on a short-term basis. I thought tactically the lads were good. I thought they built well and with 75% possession. But we just didn’t infiltrate the middle of their goal enough, did we? Obviously we scored, I’m not sure - I haven’t seen it, but my instinct was ‘what’s he doing’? And that was on a number of occasions, tonight. But it was just the final ball, I thought our corners were poor, our crosses were poor. They were going behind the goal, into the ‘keepers’ hands. And what happens is, it gives the opposition then a chance to get sit. And start again and get a breather. And that’s where we’ve been so good this year so far. We’ve been relentless in our nature and delivering in the box and picking up seconds and going wide again and then volleying it from the edge of the box and getting ricochets and ratting in their final third. It was just on too many occasions that our players that have shown so much quality in the final third didn’t tonight.

Nigel Clough has been speaking to press

I think on the back of the last two results it was important that we came and showed that we are still fighting and we are still alive and that we can still make it difficult for very good teams to score against us. Apart from a couple of long range efforts, Stephen Bywater’s not had much to do tonight. The next stage is, and we’ve talked about it after the last two away games, is to try and win the game late on. We had that one chance with Marvin Sordell, and just as it would have been, that’s the next step to try and win 1-0 on the road.

Clough is speaking to media

Some immediate reaction from Nigel Clough

Here’s what he said to BBC Radio Derby...

It was a brilliant performance to get a point and clean sheet. It was important to put a marker down after the last two home performances.

Some reaction from our sister title the Bristol Post

Big surprise in tonight's other result...

Here's my take - for what it's worth...

The Verdict

Awaiting some reaction to what was a good point for Burton..

Lucas Akins hands his shirt to a luck fan in the away end

A class act from a classy man.

FULL-TIME!

It’s finished 0-0 between Bristol City and Burton Albion.

Three goalless draws on the road for the Brewers now, and you can’t question their commitment in tonight’s match.

90: CHANCE!

Marlon Pack shoots from distance - and it very nearly nestles into the bottom right-hand corner of Bywater’s goal.

Phew.

90: FOUR minutes of added time

Plenty of the match still to be played.

90: Bristol come looking for a winner

Bobby Reid crosses out for a goal-kick - and Bywater will obviously take an age to get the game back underway.

86: Bristol looking to grab a late winner

You can feel the tension here at Ashton Gate...

84: Sordell goes down after a clash of heads

And Flint races over and tries to pick him up - that doesn’t go down well with the striker.

81: Chance!

Sordell dances his way into the box and hits an effort that looks destined for the top corner until Flint’s thumping header diverts it out...

80: Brewers sub:

Lloyd Dyer replaces Luke Varney.

80: Chance!

Sordell comes forward, twists and turns but fires wide. Brewers been a bit livelier in the second-half.

78: Leko comes forward

He’s look dangerous since he came on, and Jamie Allen dives in on him and the forward skips past him before Murphy comes across to clear.

77: Reid spreads it wide to Leko

And Varney goes charging in and goes to ground on Leko - but the West Brom loanee rides the challenge and crosses into the hands of Bywater.

76: Burton attacking with intent

Those substitutions have had an effect...

73: Brewers sub

Joe Mason is replaced by Marvin Sordell.

72: Ben Turner is down after a collision with Bailey Wright

Physio Nick Fenton is seeing to him now.

71: Bristol sub

Josh Brownhill is replaced by - you guessed it - ex-Brewer Cauley Woodrow.

70: Ben Turner absolutely clatters Diedhiou

The crowd are baying for the blood of the former Cardiff man - but it’s only a yellow.

68: Brewers sub

Hope Akpan is replaced by Matty Lund.

66: GOAL!

Or not!

Bobby Reid is played in by Luke Murphy and smashes it into the back of the net.

But there’s controversy here as referee Linington rules he had already been fouled!

It’s safe to say the Ashton Gate faithful weren’t happy with that one.

65: The resulting corner falls to Aden Flint

September’s Championship player of the month already has three goals to his name this term - but he lashes at his effort and skies it.
