Accrington Stanley vs Burton Albion
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 8 September 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Wham Stadium, Accrington.
The higher division football does not appear to be hurting Accrington Stanley who got off to a fine start with 9 points from 6 games. They will come into Saturday’s home tie with Burton Albion high on confidence going unbeaten in four subsequent league affairs.
Stanley won just once in the process (last 4 games), but it’s still a form to promise a result here against the opposition which lost each of three away fixtures so far in the season.
The Brewers played two divisions higher than their Saturday rivals, but they sit three points behind them after six games.
The reason can be found in poor performances on travels where they conceded seven goals in three straight league defeats to Gillingham, Bradford City and Oxford United.
Accrington Stanley vs Burton Albion: Head-to-head
The head to head stats speak in Stanley’s favour as Accrington won 9, drew 4 and lost 5 of 18 meetings with the Brewers over the course of history.
The teams last battled each other three years ago when they played together in the fourth tier of the English football.
Accrington were much more successful in matches at Wham Stadium where they won 6, drew 1 and lost 2 of 9 ties with the Brewers.
Accrington Stanley vs Burton Albion: Prediction
We’d not be surprised to see a goal fest on Saturday at Wham. Burton are super vulnerable at the back.
But, but they have a predator in the final third in the like of Liam Boyce who bagged as many as four goals in six games so far.
Stanley’s defensive line is all but reliable as the team conceded at least a goal in each of last seven games in all competitions.
This makes the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS bet look sweet at the 2.30 odds. Braver punters can try and catch the value backing the Over 3.5 goals FT at 3.50.
