Competition: League One
Market: Charlton win
Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport
With a real chance to make an immediate return to winning ways, promotion chasers Charlton will face off against a struggling Burton on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, putting in what was another sluggish display over the weekend, Burton slumped to a 3-1 drumming at home against Northampton and they find themselves in the midst of a real League One crisis. Already sat rock-bottom of the table and showing no real signs of improvements, the Staffordshire outfit have managed to win just one of their opening 13 third-tier contests and undoubtedly face another stern test in midweek. Along with crashing out of the FA Cup against National League side Barnet earlier in the month, Burton have also continued to show a string of issues on home soil. Including that defeat against Northampton on Saturday, the Brewers have snatched just a single point from their last five matchups at the Pirelli Stadium.
As for the visitors, while Charlton would have been left frustrated to have only collected a point away at Gillingham over the weekend, the Reds have impressed many with what has been a real League One purple patch. Already seen as one of the leading contenders to secure a Championship return at the first attempt, Lee Bowyer’s men have remarkably managed to collect 19 points from just their last seven third-tier appearances. Watching leading marksman Chuks Aneke bag a late equalizer on the road over the weekend, Charlton have not tasted League One defeat since September 26th and will also be boosted by their most recent meetings against Tuesday’s hosts. Securing back-to-back 2-1 victories against Burton, we’re backing a similar away victory in midweek.
Bet: Charlton 1/1 to beat Burton Albion in Tuesday’s League One contest @ 888sport
