Blackpool vs Burton Prediction & Match Preview

Blackpool vs Burton
England–League One
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Bloomfield Road (Blackpool).

The Seasiders are on a winning spree at the moment. They are on a 3 game win streak after a similar losing streak. Manager Terry McPhillips will be happy how his team came back to winning ways after some disappointing performances.

Over 2.5 goals came in the last 5 competitive fixtures they were part of, in which they have no clean sheets also. At home, they are losing matches at regular intervals. In the last 5 home matches, they have won 3 and lost 2 in all competitions. In 3 of those 5 games, the final score had over 2.5 goals in total.

The Pool is 9th in the table with 6 wins and they tend to draw more games, 7 this year. They are just 3 points away from the playoff spot and they are below par in attack compared to other teams. Till now they have scored only 18 goals and conceded 15 as well. Two recent defeats Fleetwood and Bristol have raised some eyebrows regarding their consistency.

Burton is just 4 points below their opponents for Saturday. They are 14th with 7 defeats and 6 wins till now. Brewers cannot defend properly as they have given away all the 21 goals they scored in the league.

Nigel Clough’s team has lost 3 of their last 6 matches in all competitions.  Over 2.5 goals came in 6 of their last 7 matches across all venues. In the last 5 of their away matches they have won and lost 2 games each and more than 2.5 goals came in the recent 4 matches.

The team from Lancashire does not have a clean sheet in their last 10 outings in both cup and league competitions. So with both teams are in an inconsistent run in the league we can see a close match on Saturday.

  • There have been 2 h2h matches between them, both won by Burton.
