Been doing some digging and in terms of club size etc, there is some sync with the Burton Albion promotion of 15/16 to the Championship.
Burton were promoted by a point on the final game. League table that year reads they lost 11 games, scored 57 and were smashed 4-0 by Fleetwood (finished outside playoff spots). League included the likes of Wigan, Sheffield United, Barnsley, Cov and Peterborough.
They were knocked out of both cups early, like us also. Lucas Atkins was top scorer with 12 goals. Bayo is tracking slightly better with 7 to his name currently.
We are tracking with a similar trajectory this season. We are slightly better placed in terms of goals scored and games lost but Burton were slightly better in regards to goals conceded.
The way I see it, is tighten up a little defensively, and repeat what we’ve achieved first half and we have a real chance.
Also interestingly Darius Charles was signed by Burton on a free transfer that season before loaning out to Wimbledon. Could well be an omen.
Time to get Adams Park rocking for the run in........
