Burton Albion vs Derby County
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Pirelli Stadium (Burton-upon-Trent).
Derby County could not do much to maintain the fine form and grab the third win on the bounce as they fell 2-0 away at runaway leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday evening. They are now lock on points with Millwall in fifth and just two above Middlesbrough in seventh, meaning a win against the rock-bottomed Burton Albion is a must for Gary Rowett and his side.
The Brewers will head into the game after a catastrophe they suffered in front of the home crowd on Tuesday evening. Hull City cruised past Nigel Clough’s side netting as many as five goals at Pirelli Stadium and leaving the hosts seven points below the line. Given there are only four games left to play, it’s clear the clash with Derby County is their last train to catch in seek for the Championship football next term.
However, their most recent spell of form does not quite promise a pleasant afternoon for their fans as the hosts are winless in last nine league outings. Furthermore, they lost four and drew two of last six, showing plenty of holes in the back line. Derby’s Matej Vydra will thus have a nice chance to shine and add to his 19-goal tally here.
