Review by Bristol Rovers fan Caz May
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
I chose this game because I hadn’t done Burton before so it would have been a new ground for me. I was only looking forward to the new ground as I knew the performance from my side would be terrible!
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
We drove up (4 of us). It was really easy to get to – we did it in just over 2 hours from Bristol. We were able to park near the ground.
Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?
We went to The Lord Burton. Atmosphere was ok – not loud but it was busy!
Where did you eat on your away day and was it good value?
We went to KFC after the game…always good value!
What did you think of the food and drink available inside the ground?
We didn’t have any food but the drink was ok. Not much choice of cider or lager but that’s pretty standard!
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
The away end was interesting…we went up some steps to get to the terracing. The view was absolutely fine. It was behind the goal and we were near the front so we could unfortunately see everything.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
Pretty dull. Couldn’t hear any noise from Burton fans. The only noise was when we sang but there wasn’t much to sing about.
How friendly were the home fans out of 10?
Didn’t come across any – but there was no trouble.
How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?
£13 on the ticket, £10 for petrol and about £20 on drinks.
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
Yes! There’s a pub right outside the ground which is handy.
