Burton take on Derby on Friday 26th August, 2016, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.
Burton and Derby County may have taken very different historical routes to get where they are today, but that counts for nothing as they look to lock horns in the SkyBet Championship. The Rams are right there with Leeds, Liverpool and other such former beauties in terms of old gold, but right now they are just another team struggling to get to the top table again.
Burton are probably going to enjoy a pressure free season without any real expectation in terms of promotion, but staying alive is still not easy in the most competitive league in Europe.
