The 2013-14 season is Burton Albion's fifth consecutive season in League Two.[1] They finished 4th in the previous season but failed to get promotion via the playoffs.[2] It is Gary Rowett's second season as manager of the club.[3]

Overview[edit]

League[edit]

Burton Albion's league campaign began well with a 2-2 away draw against Cheltenham Town on the opening day of the season,[4] which was followed by a 1-0 victory versus Rochdale in their first home game of the season.[5] In the following match they held off a Fleetwood Town comeback to beat the Lancashire side 3–2, to give them their first league away win since March 2013 (excluding play-offs).[6]

Cup Competitions[edit]

League Cup[edit]

In the League Cup, Burton were drawn against Sheffield United away in the first round.[7] They won 2-1.[8] On 8 August 2013, they were drawn a home tie against Premier League side Fulham in the second round.[9] Against Fulham, Albion equallised with five minutes remaining through Jack Dyer before taking the lead 12 minutes into extra-time, before conceding through Hugo Rodallega. After the 2–2 draw Phil Edwards was the only player to miss a penalty and Albion crashed out 4–5 in the shoot-out. After the match Burton manager Gary Rowett said he was incredibly proud to nearly knock the Premier League side out.[10]

Football League Trophy[edit]

On 17 August 2013, Burton were drawn away to Notts County in the first round of the Football League Trophy.[11]
