In Focus: Burton Albion

11 September 2017

After getting back on the winning trail against Birmingham City on Saturday, Norwich City face a quick turnaround as they prepare to face Burton Albion at Carrow Road on Tuesday.

Burton go into the match on the back of a 5-0 hammering at the hands of Leeds United but Nigel Clough’s men will provide a stern test for the Canaries. Here’s our look at City’s next opponents.

Summer signings
It was a tough summer for Clough who lost arguably his best player in Jackson Irvine. The Australian playmaker was Burton’s top scorer last season and moved to Hull City in August.

However, Clough has brought in a host of new faces as he looks to improve on their exploits last season.

The experienced defensive duo of Stephen Warnock (pictured) and Jake Buxton have both joined on free transfers with right-back John Brayford also moving on a free from Sheffield United.

Matthew Lund, Hope Akpan, Luke Murphy and Jamie Allen have been brought in to a completely new-look midfield, with Liam Boyce, Sean Scannell, Will Miller and Joe Mason signed as attacking options.

Canary connections
Connections between the two sides are in short supply seeing as Burton’s history stretches back just half a century and the two teams have only ever met twice.

However, goalkeeper Remi Matthews (pictured) has spent two stints on loan at the Pirelli Stadium with ex-Canaries Nathan Redmond and Lee Camp having also spent time on loan there.

Former striker Paul Peschisolido spent time on loan with the Canaries in 2001 and his only managerial role so far was with Burton between 2009 and 2012.

Form guide
Last season was Burton’s first in the second-tier of English football and they beat the odds to avoid relegation, securing safety with a 1-1 draw with Barnsley back in April.

However, their 2017-18 season has not begun perhaps how Clough would have wanted it to. The Brewers are currently in the bottom three and have conceded the most goals in the division.

They were defeated 1-0 on the opening day to current Sky Bet Championship table toppers Cardiff City and followed that with a 4-1 loss away at Hull City a week later.

Things didn’t get better for Burton after a midweek defeat at Middlesbrough before they picked up their first league win of the season on Friday 18 August at home to Birmingham City, the team the Canaries beat at the weekend.

A draw with Sheffield Wednesday and then the comprehensive defeat to Leeds United means that Burton’s 2017-18 league record stands at one win, one draw and four losses.

In the squad
Goalkeepers: Stephen Bywater, Connor Ripley, Harry Campbell
Defenders: Ben Turner, Kyle McFadzean, Shaun Barker, Stephen Warnock, Jake Buxton, Tom Flanagan, John Brayford
Midfielders: Matty Palmer, Lucas Akins, Tom Naylor, Jamie Allen, Lloyd Dyer, Luke Murphy, Matthew Lund, Hope Akpan, Sean Scannell, Joe Sbarra,
Forwards: Marvin Sordell, Luke Varney, Liam Boyce, Joe Mason, Will Miller

City's U23s battle back to draw with Newcastle

11 September 2017

Devonte Aransibia and an Adam Phillips penalty ensured Norwich City’s U23s battled back from a slow start to draw 2-2 away at Newcastle United at St. James’ Park.

Luke Charman and Macauley Gillesphey gave the hosts a two-goal lead inside 20 minutes but City responded well and were the better team for the rest of the contest.

Aransibia got their first just after the break with a thumping strike before Adam Phillips comfortably rolled home from the penalty spot on 82 minutes to complete the turnaround.

Head coach Matt Gill handed Pierre Fonkeu and Savvas Mourgos their first league starts with Emmerson Sambu coming in at right-back and Glenn Middleton returning on the wing after international duty with Scotland’s Under-19s.

City began well in possession but found themselves two goals down inside the opening 20 minutes. First, Jonjo Shelvey’s long ball was finished well by Charman before Gillesphey doubled their lead, heading home Dan Barlaser’s corner.

The central midfield trio of Phillips, Mourgos and Todd Cantwell looked tidy despite the team going behind. The three combined on 22 minutes with Cantwell feeding Middleton on the right but his shot flew just over.

Ten minutes later, City had their best chance to get on the scoreboard. Aransibia, playing on the left-hand side, whipped a brilliant delivery into the six-yard box but Fonkeu headed agonisingly over the bar.

Just before half-time City went close again. Mourgos broke through Newcastle’s midfield line and slotted the ball wide to Cantwell who couldn’t get a clean connection on his shot.

City carried on the momentum into the second half and pulled a goal back on 49 minutes. Again, Cantwell and Mourgos linked up well on the edge of the area with Cantwell feeding Aransibia on the left to smash the ball past Freddie Woodman.

Chances were few and far between in the second half with Newcastle defending deep and City having to be patient.

Gill made some changes and one of them, Kieran Higgs, was involved for City’s equaliser. The energetic midfielder was fouled in the penalty area on 82 minutes and up stepped captain Phillips to fire home to spot-kick and deservedly complete the comeback.

Fonkeu went close to giving the City all three points in the final ten minutes but, after a slow start, the Canaries were well worth their point at the final whistle against an experienced Newcastle side.
