Wolves vs Burton: Preview and Predictions

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Burton Albion
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 17th March 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Molineux (Wolverhampton).

Wolves were looking a bit shaken in recent weeks. The team had several poor performances with undesirable results. The difference on the top now lies at just 3 points which puts their top spot under pressure. Cardiff are looking great currently behind them and this increases the pressure even further.

Wolves reassured some of their positions last round. After a few poor performances the team faced Reading. There was one clear and deserved winner in the end and it wasn’t Reading. Wolves dominated the whole game creating chances and finishing them off. Doherty twice and Benik Afobe gave Wolves a comfortable victory.

Burton continue their struggle for survival. The team is 23rd on goal difference and currently sits 3 points behind Barnsley on 21st place. Burton are an interesting phenomenon as they have won twice more points on the road than at home. They have just 10 points at home for the whole season while they earned 20 on the road.

Last round the Brewers lost to Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. Sheffield United looked the better side overall. One goal in each half for The Blades and Burton headed home empty handed.

Wolves vs Burton: Head-to-head

  • Wolves are unbeaten in 4 games at home – 3 victories and 1 draw

Wolves vs Burton: Predictions

Wolves are the heavy favourites here. Not only they are the better side but they need the points. The team has just 3 points advantage over Cardiff and cannot afford easy slip ups. Their excellent defensive line should also be able to keep Burton away considering the Brewers poor scoring form.
