Home Burton Albion

10/03/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm Pirelli Stadium V Predicted Score:0 - 2

Away Bristol City

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Bristol’s front two. In Reid and Famara Diediou, the Robins have one of the most prolific strike duos in the league. Away from home, there will be more pressure for Burton to attack, giving more space for the forwards. Diediou is 5/1 to score first.

2 We fancy:

Bristol to win to nil at 9/5. Despite being in poor form, Johnson’s side should have enough in their locker to beat a demoralised Burton team.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Jacob Davenport to score first at 22/1. The 19-year-old midfielder has impressed in his starts for Burton, and even notched a goal in their last win. The Manchester City youngster will benefit from game time and should be growing in confidence.

Team News

Burton Albion's Last Six:

Won: 1 Drawn: 2 Lost: 3

Tom Flanagan made his return last week for Nigel Clough’s side, however the Brewers are without a number of senior players. John Brayford and Ben Turner are both out with calf injuries, while Hope Akpan is likely to miss out too. Having gone off against Brentford, Damien McCrory is also a doubt, limiting the manager’s defensive options.

Bristol City's Last Six:

Won: 1 Drawn: 3 Lost: 2

Following their defeat to Preston last weekend, Bristol are without the suspended Aden Flint and Joe Bryan. To make their defensive shortage worse, Nathan Baker remains out with a groin injury, and is joined by Matty Taylor and Callum O’Dowda on the sidelines.

Burton Albion vs Bristol City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Burton Albion come into this game against Bristol City at the Pirelli Stadium looking for a victory to boost their survival hopes

Neither side is in particularly good form, but a win could provide a turning point as Burton Albion host Bristol City this weekend. With just one win in each of their last six games, the 28 point gulf in the league means little going into the game.

Burton are 3/1 to win, and three points against a struggling Bristol side would be massive in their attempt to break clear of the relegation zone. However, Clough has a hard task ahead of him motivating his players after a poor defeat to Brentford in their last game, and will need a positive start if he is to get anything from this match.

Bristol City are 5/6 to win, and Lee Johnson’s side could also really do with taking all three points from the game. They sit just four points off a play-off position, but have recently been overtaken by a resurgent Middlesbrough side. They are running out of time to make their own promotion push, and have to win against the Championship’s lower placed sides.

A draw is 13/5, and given both sides’ poor goalscoring form, would not be a poor bet. Burton will undoubtedly defend deep, as a point would be a decent result for the Brewers.

Lloyd Dyer is 9/2 to score anytime, and is leading the Brewers’ scoring charts this season. Playing on the left of midfield, the Dyer hasn’t scored in seven so should be due a goal soon.

Bobby Reid is 7/4 to score against Burton, and is currently the Championship’s top scorer with 17 goals to his name. The English forward failed to score against Preston, but got a hat-trick in the game before against Sheffield Wednesday. Burton will struggle to keep the in-form Reid at bay on Saturday.

Predicted Score: Burton Albion 0 - 2 Bristol City
