Wolves vs Burton: Prediction

Wolves are the favourites in this game, they have been on a good form and also have a better and experienced squad more than the new boys. Wolves are unbeaten in 6 of their last 7 games in all countries this season. They have won 4 games and drawn 2, losing just 1. Also Wolves have scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 7 games.

Burton Albion are not bad themselves, the win against Derby in their last game is a huge boost to them. But can they withstand Wolves at their home?
