History of the Burton Albion v Crawley Town fixture

Crawley Town pack their bags to visit Burton Albion at Eton Park on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 9 out of 13 times.

The previous match played between the two at Eton Park was more than three years back, in March 2001, the Brewers carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a (Southern) Premier match.
