Burton Albion vs Hull City
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 10 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Pirelli Stadium (Burton-upon-Trent).
With five games left to play until the end of the season, Tuesday’s clash with Hull City is definitely the last chance for Burton Albion to grab the survival lifeline. They are seven points adrift of the safe zone, sitting at the very foot of the Championship standings ahead of the tie with the Tigers. The visitors have also been struggling badly with the form throughout the entire season, but Nigel Adkins has finally managed to shift team’s fortunes around recently.
Hull City have thus lost only one out of last six league affairs and they come into this seven points above the line. Furthermore, the Tigers have been super inspired in the final third on Saturday, bagging four in a demolishing victory over Queens Park Rangers at KCON Stadium. Harry Wilson, Kamil Grosicki and Abel Hernandez were on target for Adkins’ side. Given the team has previously netted two past the table-toppers Wolverhampton Wanderers away at Molineux Stadium, we have reasons to expect another strong effort from them at Pirelli Stadium.
The hosts have the second-worst defensive record in the league and they’ll head into this winless in last eight Championship contests. At home, The Brewers have not clinched a single victory since September last year. The run includes 14 straight league games. Furthermore, Nigel Clough’s side has not scored more than once in last five league games in front of the home crowd.
This will only be the second H2H encounter between Burton Albion and Hull City,
The Tigers have been ruthless back in August last year when Abel Hernandez notched a hat-trick in a demolishing 4-1 victory at KCOM Stadium.
Hull City will come into this in much higher spirits and we can hardly go past backing the away win here at the 2.05 odds.
Abel Hernandez has been particularly inspired in this term’s clash with Burton Albion. He was also on target in the weekend’s thumping of QPR. We’ll back him to score anytime at the odds of 2.60 here.
Hull City to win @ 2.05
Abel Hernandez to score anytime @ 2.60
