Burton may still be on the wrong side of the edge of the relegation zone but they finally took some air last round. They proved once again that the team plays better away when the opposition tries to control the game.
Last round Burton took important 3 points from a direct rival. They visited Barnsley getting the lead with the first whistle. Allen scored the important goal. Burton dropped deeper and continued to play on the counter. They struck another crushing blow second before the half time which absolutely stunned their hosts. Barnsley got a consolidation goal in the second half but that was all.
Millwall have improved considerably in recent weeks. Their home ground looks like a fortress whole season long but they also managed to get points on the road in recent weeks which was the team’s weak spot.
Last round they took another home victory this time against Sheffield Wednesday. The win didn’t come easy though as Wednesday took the lead near the end of the first half. The Lions made a complete turnaround in the second half though winning 2-1.
