Burton Albion v Birmingham City Betting Tips: Home side lack confidence to turn fortunes around

Friday’s Championship fixture sees a Midlands derby between Burton Albion and Birmingham City. This fixture was also played on a Friday last season with Burton Albion winning 2-0 thanks to goals from Lloyd Dyer and Jamie Ward. Burton arguably had the best season in their history last term as they defied the odds to finish above the Championship relegation zone. However, they have had a terrible start to their second campaign in the division and currently sit at the foot of the table. They are the only team in the league to not pick up a single league point so…

Burton Albion v Reading Betting Tips: Brewers can sign off in good style

Neither of these sides have nothing to play for in this final game with Burton having survived in their maiden Championship season and Reading having secured their place in the play-offs. Burton have had a good final few games of the season with two wins and a draw in their last three matches, ensuring that they’re now four points clear of the drop-zone with just the one game to go. This match against Reading represents a chance for the team to give the fans a entertaining end to this successful season. The Brewers have based their survival mission on having…

Burton Albion v Aston Villa Betting Tips: Villans to make it five in a row

This match is somewhat of a Midlands derby with arguably the smallest club in the division, Burton Albion, hosting possibly the division’s biggest club, Aston Villa. Burton lost narrowly to league leaders Newcastle United on Wednesday night but it is still fair to say that they are on a decent run at the moment with just three defeats in their last nine matches. Overall, this puts them 19th in the table and four points above the drop-zone. This is obviously not the biggest cushion but, if they carry on their good form, they should be safe – a remarkable achievement.…

Newcastle v Burton Albion Betting Tips: Magpies to prove too good at home

These two teams are still well involved at this business end of the season with Newcastle still hoping to lift the title whilst Burton Albion are simply looking to survive in their maiden season in the second tier. Newcastle picked up a vital three points at the weekend against Wigan Athletic at the weekend to end a run of three without a win, putting them at the top of the Championship, one point clear of Brighton & Hove Albion. Unsurprisingly, the Toon Army have been fantastic in both boxes throughout the course of the season with 72 goals scored and…

Burton Albion v Blackburn Rovers Betting Tips: Clough’s men can do the business

These two sides have the primary aim of surviving in the Championship this season and so this match on Friday night is absolutely vital to both of them. Burton are currently five points above the drop-zone thanks to a couple of excellent recent results which have seen them take unlikely points off play-off hopefuls Norwich City and Derby County. They have also lost just once in their last four league matches. The Brewers are not the most attacking side in the division and average just a goal per game. Defensively though they are pretty solid and, although they have conceded…

Brighton v Burton Albion Betting Tips: Normal service to be resumed for Seagulls

This Championship match sees a battle of two Albions as promotion hopefuls Brighton host relegation candidates Burton Albion. Brighton have been having a relatively bad time of late with no wins in their last three matches in all competitions. However, they do still sit in second and, with five points separating them and Reading, look like they should go up. Solidity had been the Seagulls’ strength throughout this season but it now seems that their defence has wobbled quite a bit with nine goals conceded in their last three games. Their strike force is certainly one of the best in…

Burton v Fulham Betting Tips: Visiting side can kick-on at the Pirelli

This Championship match sees two teams with wholly different aims this season go head-to-head as survival hopefuls Burton Albion host play-off chasers Fulham. After a surprisingly good start to the season, Burton have really dipped and have suffered eight defeats in their last ten Championship matches, winning the other two, putting them down in 20th and just three points ahead of the drop-zone. The Brewers will of course be boosted by the victory claimed in their most recent game at home to Queens Park Rangers but will feel deflated again when they realise that this match against Fulham could be…

Burton v Wigan Betting Tips: Hosts ready to take three points at The Pirelli

This Championship match is a relegation clash between newly-promoted Burton Albion and Wigan Athletic – both of whom are in terrible form at the moment. Burton are playing in this league for the first time in their history but are arguably making a good fist of it as they sit outside the drop-zone with 25 games gone. However, a poor recent run of five losses in their last six means they are only outside the bottom three by just a single point. Despite this recent losing streak, overall, the Brewers have actually been pretty good at the back with their…

One of Saturday’s Boxing Day Championship matches is a Midlands derby as Burton Albion visit Aston Villa. Steve Bruce’s arrival at Aston Villa has certainly turned the club. Although they have suffered a couple of losses in the last few weeks, which ended Bruce’s unbeaten start as Villa boss, The Villains picked up a vital away win at Queen’s Park Rangers last weekend, lifting them up to 13th in the league and just six points off the play-offs. Villa were leaking goals prior to Bruce’s appointment and the Geordie has certainly made his team a lot harder to beat. However,…

Two clubs with vastly different aims go head-to-head on Tuesday as survival hopefuls Burton Albion host play-off chasing Huddersfield Town. Burton, who are currently in 20th and just two points clear from relegation, have been very inconsistent all season and are still yet to notch consecutive wins in their first ever season in the second tier. However, they are picking up points very steadily and their attacking tactical approach is very refreshing for a newly-promoted side. Although they have scored in their last three matches, goals are generally a problem for Nigel Clough’s side with just 22 goals in 20…

This weekend’s Friday night Championship fixture is a bit of a Midlands derby as newly-promoted Burton Albion take on Birmingham City. This will be the first time that former Burton Albion manager Gary Rowett faces his former team. Burton have had a stunning rise through the divisions in the last few years and now find themselves in the second tier of English football (a club record) after successive promotions. Despite having one of the lowest budgets in the league, Nigel Clough’s team have so far made a fairly decent start and currently sit 19th – two points clear of the…

The Pirelli and iPro stadiums may only be 25 minutes apart but these clubs have been a long distance from each other in footballing terms until now. Burton were playing non-league whilst Derby were in the Premiership in 2007/08 but they will come against each other as equals on Friday night. Nigel Clough’s Burton side were on the end of a 5-0 home thrashing by Premier League Liverpool in the League Cup the other night but have otherwise adjusted well to their first season in England’s second tier. The Brewers may currently be sitting in 18th position but at least…

Liverpool are probably the biggest club to ever visit Burton Albion in a competitive fixture. However, Jurgen Klopp’s side should not expect an easy ride against a team who have rocketed up the leagues in recent years. Burton Albion are now in the Championship after back-to-back promotions in the last two years. The Brewers have made an astonishing rise from non-league football in under ten years. Interestingly, Nigel Clough, who managed Burton all those years ago, is now back at the helm of the club. The Staffordshire side have once again been entertaining to watch this season and there have…

Burton – Oldham. Mark O’Haire’s prediction

Burton appear well on course to secure back-to-back promotions, heading into the Easter weekend with a six-point advantage at the top of the League One tree. The Brewers have posted an equal-best shots-on-target ratio figure (60%) alongside mega-money Wigan and have churned out a remarkable 51/83 (61%) league wins since the start of last season – had you backed the Yellows in all 83 games, you’d be £429 up from a £10 stake. Of those 51 victories, 30 (36%) have been achieved alongside a clean sheet. Burton have failed to score on just 16 (19%) occasions and overall they’ve shut…
