The Brewers found a late equaliser against Derby County to extend their unbeaten run to seven at the weekend, while the visitors saw their chance to build on a run of three wins from four ended by a frozen pitch.

Although they have recently stopped the slump and avoided becoming cut further adrift inside the League One relegation zone, Burton again failed to take three points when they hosted Derby County on Saturday.

Victor Adeboyejo, who scored the opener for the Brewers in the previous game against MK Dons, was called upon to score an equaliser in the closing stages, with his 12th goal of the season salvaging a 1-1 draw with a serious promotion contender.

However, the Brewers are still languishing in 22nd place, both five points adrift of a spot of safety in the standings and their upcoming opponents Accrington.

Since appointing Dino Maamria to replace Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink earlier this season, an improvement in form has slowly taken place, and Burton have secured progression to both the FA Cup third round and the EFL Trophy’s last 16.

Now unbeaten in their last seven matches, Burton reached the knockout round of the latter competition  by topping a group consisting of Bradford City, Sheffield Wednesday and Leicester City U21, before defeating Tranmere Rovers on penalties in the second round.

Saturday’s scheduled match at home against Portsmouth saw Accrington Stanley frustrated by the wintry weather, which resulted in an unplayable surface causing the game to be postponed.

Having failed to tackle one of the division’s top sides at the Wham Stadium, Accrington remain in 19th place. However, before making the trip south on Tuesday, they are unbeaten in four matches across all competitions.

That streak stands in sharp contrast to a run of just one point from seven matches during a miserable October, and John Coleman’s side appear to be on the rise again.

Progression to the FA Cup third round through victories over Crawley Town and Barnet has set up a tie with Boreham Wood in January, while defeating Cambridge United and taking a point against Oxford United has stailised a faltering league campaign.

After finishing second to Salford City in an EFL Trophy group from which Rochdale and Liverpool youngsters were eliminated, Accrington knocked out Grimsby Town in the first knockout round, with Tommy Leigh’s second-half penalty setting up this week’s tie with Burton.

Burton Albion vs. Accrington Stanley Head to head

Accrington have scored 40 goals and conceded 39. In their last five meetings, Burton have won two while they have drawn three.

Maamria may decide to make a number of changes to his starting lineup, but Victor Adeboyelo could continue up front, having played from the start in the previous round.

Accrington Stanley Team News

Accrington are likely to name a relatively strong side, which will include Harvey Rodgers, who was nominated for League One’s November Player of the Month award.

Coleman brought Ryan Astley and Doug Tharme back into his defence last time out, and both are likely to be retained, with Ethan Hamilton also included in the side.
