Burton vs Gillingham
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 12th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Pirelli Stadium (Burton upon Trent).
Marcus Harness was the hero of the match for Burton as he chipped in with a hat-trick as his team destroyed Rochdale despite being on the road. The final scoreline was 0-4. After an inconsistent end to the last year, the team had been slowly rebuilding themselves and completed four matches in a row without a defeat.
Gillingham may be mimicking their opponent for the game but in the opposite direction. After their successful end to the last calendar year, the team has been suffering in the league in the previous weeks. They were able to register a hard-earned victory in the FA Cup though. A 1-0 win at home against Cardiff.

- Burton has never failed to score against the Gills while having the backing of the home crowd.
Burton vs Gillingham Prediction
The Brewers boast a 100% unbeaten record against the Gills at this venue. The stat becomes even more impressive when it comes to light that if a single 1-1 draw that occurred back in 2011 is disregarded, Burton has a 100% winning record against this rival.
Adding to that, the hosts have never failed to find the back of Gillingham’s net and has scored two or more goals in their last two h2h home matches.
The team captained by Jake Buxton is unbeaten in their last three home-ties, while Steve Lovell’s men have lost both of their last two away games.
Gillingham is under a lot of pressure to perform while their opponents are seated in a comfortable position in the league table. The Gills are just one point away from the relegation line and just two points separate the four teams below the 18th spot in league standings. The team has no option but to attack, and this will in all likelihood cause their doom.
Expect a home win, and at least two goals by the hosts.
