Burton Albion vs Fleetwood Town: Prediction
Brewers crashed out of the FA Cup last Sunday after a horrendous display v League Two outlet Northampton Town who rapid-fired their way to the 4-2 victory.
Sitting at 14th, having managed 33 points from 23 games, promotion places are still within the reach for Nigel Clough’s side. They’re just three points away from Peterborough Utd and have game in hand as Brewers’s game with relegation-threatened Milton Keynes was postponed.
At Pirelli Stadium, Burton is doing decently enough. After suffering two opening defeats, Clough’s men went on an unbeaten run that ended on December 7th, when Lincoln Imps got the better of them. But Brewers got back on feet with two consecutive victories and await their next opponent in high spirits.
It was end of the line for Fleetwood Town, as they exit the FA Trophy after penalty shootout heartbreak against Accrington Stanley on Tuesday night.
But in the league, Joey Barton-led side is doing great. Currently on a five-game unbeaten run, The Fishermen are tied with Peterborough at seventh, with two games in hand and a chance to challenge Rotheram at 2nd.
But most of their good work is done in front of their own fans. Eleven points collected from ten trips, which are most often than not hugely entertaining affairs, with goals leaking left and right.
With Burton defense becoming porous since mid-December and adding Fleetwood’s maverick approach on the road in the equation, I think we can expect another entertaining game on Saturday afternoon, with goals coming from both sides.
Also, I think Barton’s team is winning this. They know how to deal with Brewers, as they’ve smacked the hell out of them last time in 4-1 win. But let’s proceed with caution. Just to be safe, I’ll recommend Fleetwood Draw No Bet.
