Recap Burton Albion's 9-0 win over Arnold Town as the Brewers continued their pre-season preparations on Thursday night.

Albion included the likes of first-team squad members Tom Naylor, Matty Palmer, Ben Fox and Damien McCrory are all expected to be in contention for tonight's match - with academy players making up the rest of the squad.

The squad was largely different to the one that faced West Bromwich Albion and lost 1-0 last night, with all six of the Brewers ' new signings this summer making their home debuts.

With Shrewsbury Town and Leicester City still left to play - on Saturday and Tuesday night respectively, there's still plenty of time for players to stake a claim for a particular spot in Nigel Clough's starting line-up ahead of the season opener against Cardiff City on Saturday week (August 5).

Relive exactly how Albion hammered Arnold below, with the help of a Marcus Dinanga and Jake Davies double, and efforts each from Joe Sbarra, Ben Fox, Tom Naylor, Matty Palmer and Jack Hallahan.
