The Brewers have risen through the leagues in recent years and survived their first season at Championship level, finishing in 20th place in 2016/17.
Saturday 12th August will see the two sides meet at the KCOM Stadium, while the trip to Burton’s Pirelli Stadium comes on Tuesday 10th April.
Although that will be a first competitive trip to Albion’s home, some Tigers fans may recall visiting there for a pre-season friendly back in 2005. The game was played as part of the deal that saw goalkeeper Matt Duke move from Burton to East Yorkshire, with the sides drawing 2-2 on that occasion.
