Competition: League One

Market: Burton Albion win

Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365

Knowing that three points on Saturday could see them break into the top-six, Burton will welcome a struggling Accrington Stanley to the Pirelli Stadium this weekend.

Starting with the hosts, keeping the mood in their camp at a high with a 1-0 win over a resurging MK Dons last weekend, Burton are enjoying quite the purple patch. Now sat just two points adrift of climbing into the play-off spots, Nigel Clough’s men have won their last three League One matches on the bounce and have also won five of their last six third-tier appearances. Transforming into one of League One’s in-form outfits, a huge part of Burton’s recent revival has come thanks to their form on home soil. Saturday’s hosts have won their last four straight appearances at the Pirelli Stadium and there is no doubt that Clough’s men will be excited by Accrington’s arrival this weekend.

As for the visitors, while the mood in Burton’s camp might be at a continued high, the same cannot be said for John Coleman’s men. Coming off the back of a 2-1 defeat away at League Two outfit Salford in the FA Trophy in midweek, Accrington find themselves in the midst of a three-match losing run, a run also highlighted by a 4-1 hammering away at Ipswich earlier in the month. Now hit with back-to-back defeats away from the Wham Stadium, it should also be noted that Accrington have just one away victory to their name since the end of September. Given the recent gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a home victory this weekend.
