Burton Albion host Nottingham Forest today (3pm) looking to re-energise their push for Championship survival - and you can follow all the action in a big game for the Brewers here.

Albion face an out-of-form Forest side who have not won since a 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers last month, with Aitor Karanka telling his side to prepare for "war" at the Pirelli Stadium.

The Brewers snapped a five-game losing streak of their own at Portman Road last week, drawing 0-0 with Ipswich Town in a game from which they probably should have garnered all three points.

Jacob Davenport is likely to start for his home Burton debut, while Liam Boyce could feature off the bench again.

As always, we'll have all the action covered, with team news, full match coverage and post-match reaction to come.

Nigel Clough is here

I think it’s the same problems for us whether it’s 10 men, 11 men or whatever.

The view from the opposition

The report is in

We're waiting to hear from both managers...

What will Nigel Clough and Aitor Karanka make of that?

My take...

90: Full-time!

That’s all, folks. Burton’s wait for a home win continues as they draw 0-0 here at the Pirelli Stadium with Nottingham Forest.

Eric Lichaj’s first-half red card swung the game in the Brewers’ favour, but they couldn’t capitalise.

Stick around for full match reaction.

90: Akins shoots straight at the 'keeper

It’s another one of those days, folks.

90: Dowell picks up a booking

You guessed it - kicking the ball away.

90: Final Albion sub

Hope Akpan is replaced by Luke Murphy.

90: Davenport is fouled by Watson

Jack Colback then picks up a yellow card for kicking the ball away.

88: Chance!

Akins heads it down following a Sbarra cross, but the linesman’s flag is up for offside.

Forest then make their final change, with Lee Tomlin coming off for Kieran Dowell.

85: Chance!

Forest break, and Tendayi Darikwa strikes a wicked effort just wide of Stephen Bywater;s right-hand post!

84: Chance!

Sbarra fizzes a cross in, but Pantilimon can only palm it away - and Darren Bent is just inches away from getting on the end of it...

The Brewers keep coming forward...

80: Albion pushing for an opener

Nothing doing for them so far, though, but Forest are pinned back.

77: Samuelsen whips another cross in

But there’s too much curl on it, and Joe Sbarra can’t reach it at the back-post.

75: Great cross!

But Jacob Davenport can’t find either Boyce or Bent!

It just flies past them both - agonisingly close.

73: Big chance!

A cross falls to Bent, who has time to set himself and fire on goal - but it’s a great block by Danny Fox.

Will the Brewers be left feeling like this at full-time?

71: Chance!

Samuelsen drives a shot towards goal, stinging the palms of Forest ‘keeper Pantilimon - but it’s saved.

69: Liam Boyce is about to make his home debut

He replaces Jamie Allen.

68: Akins' cross is cleared this time

That was by Tobias Figueirdo.

67: Close!

Sbarra’s cross is deflected over for a corner by Watson.

64: Samuelsen tricks his way into the box

Nice work from the Norweigan, and his cross strikes a Forest player, with handball appeals falling on deaf ears.

63: Brewers have fallen flat a bit

They shot out of the blocks, but they’ve failed to continue to take the initiative.

61: Daryl Murphy comes on for Ben Brereton

Boos all-round for the big man coming off...

59: Brayford makes way for Joe Sbarra

That’s the Brewers’ first change of the afternoon.
