Burton Albion vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This Saturday afternoon game (15:00) from the Pirelli Stadium features two sides who were victorious in the league last time out. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Burton defeated Birmingham 2-1 in their last league game thanks to a goal each from Marvin Sordell and Lloyd Dyer. In the League Cup, the Brewers became the first side to defeat Cardiff beating them 2-1 thanks to a goal each from Tom Naylor and Ben Fox.

Sheffield Wednesday picked up a morale boosting three points in their last league game as they defeated Fulham 1-0 at Craven Cottage thanks to a Steven Fletcher goal. In midweek, Wednesday went down 3-2 to Bolton despite two late goals from Jordan Rhodes.

The Brewers took four points from the two meetings between these sides last season with a 1-1 draw in the game at Yorkshire and the game at the Pirelli ended 3-1. Kyle McFadzean, Jackson Irvine and Lloyd Dyer got one each while Gary Hooper grabbed the one for Owls.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Following their defeat of Fulham last time out Wednesday might be a popular bet here but the price is too short for my liking considering how they struggle for goals.

Lack of goals is the way to approach this although instead of the over/under market try a little interest on the clean sheets. Sheffield Wednesday have kept a clean sheet in four of their last six away matches and look worth an interest to do the same here.

If you think they can kept a clean sheet then also try an interest on the time of the first team goal with NO Burton goal before 68:00 also worth taking.

Burton Albion Preview

Burton had started the season with three straight defeats but gained three valuable points by seeing off Birmingham last time out. This though marks a difficult run of games with six of their next seven coming against sides in the top ten ante-post betting prices.

At home, that victory put to an end a run of two defeats in the league and it is just two of seven victories. A feature of these games is both teams scoring which has happened in six of their last seven with five of them going over 2.5 goals.

The Brewers have netted three times this season with a goal each from Jackson Irvine, Lloyd Dyer and Marvin Sordell. Matthew Palmer is a player to watch from midfield as he once again produced the most shots with two of his three on target.

Hope Akpan will miss the game through suspension while Matty Lund is out for a few weeks with an ankle injury. Summer signing Liam Boyce has been ruled out until the new year with a cruciate ligament injury.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

Sheffield Wednesday registered their first victory of the season in the Championship by gaining three points at Craven Cottage. Carlos Carvalhal feels a corner has been turned by his team and it will be interesting to see if this is a good run for Wednesday.

On the road, it means that they have now won four of their last six over the end of last season and the start of this one.  The Owls strong defence is key to this form with four of their last six on their travels seeing them keep clean sheets.

All three of their goals in the league this season have come in the second 45 minutes while the two that they have conceded have come in the opening 45 minutes. Steven Fletcher netted in the last league game and registered three shots with two on target, Gary Hooper also had two shots but neither was on target.
