Stanley are looking to return to winning ways in npower League Two having taken one point from back-to-back home games against Gillingham and Rotherham at the end of last month.
The Reds' form on the road has generally been more impressive this term and, following last weekend's dramatic 3-3 draw with Oxford in the FA Cup, Richardson believes his charges are in good order.
He told Press Association Sport: "We're really looking forward to the game. Burton are a really good team who've got good individual players and good management.
"But we'll be approaching it to try and get a positive result ourselves. We've been going okay, been playing some good football.
"It's important we apply ourselves well and try and get a positive result."
