Burton Albion vs Derby County Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in need of points at opposite ends of the Championship.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Burton saw a final nail in their survival hopes as they suffered a 5-0 defeat at home to Hull on Tuesday night.  The Brewers can have few complaints about a result as they were second best throughout.

Derby saw their two-game winning run come to an end on Wednesday night as they went down to a 2-0 loss to Wolves.  The Rams can have few complaints about the score as they barely created a chance.

The reverse fixture came early in December and County won that one 1-0 thanks to a Johnny Russell goal.  It continues a low scoring trend with their three previous head-to-heads producing a total of just two goals.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Derby are the most likely winners but the prices reflect that and despite the poor home form of Burton I could not be getting involved at those odds on a side that have won just two of their last eight on the road.

The Brewers have failed to net in five of their last six and are up against the joint-fourth best ranked defence in the division so the price on the Rams to keep a clean-sheet looks good as does no Albion goal before 79:00.

Burton Albion Preview

Just three points from their last eight means that the Brewers are bottom of the table and with just four games remaining are seven points from safety.  They would need to win at least three of their next four and hope that sides round about them do not pick up any points.

At the Pirelli Stadium, they are without a victory since September 16th and they have won just two times this season.  Just one of their last six in front of their own fans has gone over 2.5 goals and that was last time out when Hull hit all five.

It is an equal split of 21 Championship matches over 2.5 goals and 21 under 2.5 goals this season for Burton.  They have both the worst defensive record in the division and the worst attacking record.

 

Burton Albion Team News

Kyle McFadzean (knock), Darren McCrory (hamstring) are doubts while Willie Miller is a long-term absentee.

Derby County Preview

The Rams have won two of their last three which has allowed them to hold on to fifth place and a play-off spot.  They are two points above Middlesbrough who are in seventh though crucially they have a game in hand.

Away from the iPro Stadium, it has been a mixed bag of late with two victories, four draws and two defeats from their last eight.  None of their last four and just one of their last seven on the road has gone over 2.5 goals.

Tom Lawrence has netted in two of his last three while Matej Vydra has found the net in two of his last four.  Derby would be as high as second in the table if results were decided on half-time scores.

 

Derby County Team News

Ikechi Anya (calf), Bradley Johnson (foot), Marcus Olsson (back), Kyle McAllister, (groin) and Jonathan Mitchell (finger) are doubts while Sam Winnall (cruciate) is out for the season
