History of the Burton Albion v Crawley Town fixture

Crawley Town face a trip to Burton Albion at Eton Park on Tuesday evening, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 11 out of 15 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in November 2005, with Burton Albion running out comfortable 3 - 1 winners in a Conference match.
