Market: Burton Albion win to nil

Odds: 7/5 @ Bet 365

Looking to pile even more pressure onto Sol Campbell, Burton will welcome Southend to the Pirelli Stadium on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, booking their spot in the third round of this year’s FA Cup with a 1-0 win away at Oldham over the weekend, Nigel Clough has seen his side land back-to-back victories and dreaming of mounting a play-off charge. Knowing that another victory on Tuesday would see them break into the top half of the League One standings, fans around Staffordshire will be growing more impressed by their side’s new-found defensive resolve. Recording four straight clean sheets at the Pirelli Stadium, Burton have now not conceded a single League One strike on home soil since the 17th of August.

As for the visitors, putting in another woeful display and on the wrong end of a 4-0 hammering at home against Oxford last time out, Southend have continued to struggle since appointing Sol Campbell. Already sat 11 points adrift of safety entering December and seen to be a landslide favorite for the drop this season, the Essex outfit have recorded just a single League One victory this season. Remarkably already shipping a staggering 52 goals this year, it is no surprise that the mood around Roots Hall remains at an all-time low. Given Burton’s continued success on home soil, we’re backing an easy night’s work for the Brewers on Tuesday night.
