Burton Albion host Millwall today (3pm) looking to end their five-month wait for a home victory and a result that could move them out of the bottom three.

Tuesday night's 2-1 triumph at Barnsley has lifted the spirits around the Pirelli Stadium, and Albion are now looking for their first back-to-back wins since December.

Burton Albion celebrate Marvin Sordell's winner at Millwall

The Brewers could climb out of the relegation zone for the first time this year with a win over Neil Harris' side, who would go into the top half of the table if they claim the three points.

The Lions have won four of their last seven matches in an unbeaten run that has seen them steer well clear of any relegation trouble this term.

Eyes will be on the Brewers teamsheet again at 2pm, with injury doubts over Ben Turner, Tom Flanagan, John Brayford and Luke Murphy.

Key Events

Some reaction from Nigel Clough and Neil Harris...

Here's today's scores...

Nigel Clough speaks...

It’s another defeat, but I’m not quite sure how it was. Over the course of the game, the chances we created and the situations we created and the manner of the winning goal. It’s an extremely poor result, but in terms of performance there’s nothing wrong with that apart from a goal.

Neil Harris on today...

Burton can feel a bit hard done by today. James made a slight error and got back to make the tackle. Benty had a couple of chances before half time. And those five minutes were crucial before half time because if Burton had scored then when they were on top, then it could have been a different second half. Sometimes you just have to take goals like we got, scrappy goals with some good fortune in it. You take them when they come along because you don’t get them too often at this level.

Reaction to come shortly...

Jordan Archer didn't have a great deal to do today...

Grim reading...

The verdict is in...

Here's my take...

Full-time!

Albion’s long, long wait for a home win continues.

Once again they fail to back up a convincing away display with something similar at home.
