Fulham vs Burton Albion Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

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

Fulham continued their climb up the table with an important three points at the Riverside winning the game 1-0 thanks to a 90th minute Oliver Norwood penalty. It was an important victory against one of their promotion rivals.

Burton meanwhile suffered a disappointing home loss in a key relegation battle going down 3-1 at home to QPR. Albion were in the game thanks to a Lloyd Dyer goal but shipped two in the last 15 minutes.

The reverse fixture came in the middle of September at the Pirelli Stadium and the Brewers won the game 2-1. Stephen Warnock and Lukas Akins (penalty) netted for the home side while the visitors goal came from Oliver Norwood.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Fulham should win this one given the respective positions of both sides but the price does not really invite a bet so to look elsewhere to find the value.

The Brewers have been level in 16 of their 27 this season going into the break and they can be backed here to do the same. They have conceded 27 goals this season in the second-half which is an average of one per game so therefore it looks worth a little interest in the home team to finally get their noses in front.

Fulham Preview

The Cottagers have taken 13 points from a possible 15 on offer in their last fixtures and have climbed into eighth. They now face a four-game run against teams in the bottom-half so might continue this good run of form.

At Craven Cottage, it is four straight victories, five without defeat and just one loss in their last 11. They have netted eight goals in their last four in front of their own fans while conceding just two.

Four of the last five for Fulham have seen both teams score while two of these have seen both sides net at least twice. It is now 13 goals from their last five for the London outfit and in just one of their last five have they failed to net more than one goal.

Fulham Team News

Floyd Ayite (hamstring) is a doubt for this game.

Burton Albion Preview

Just four points from their last four in the league means the Brewers are still in the bottom three. This is the first of three of their next four on the road but given that 16 of their 24 points have come on their travels this might not be a bad thing.

Away from the Pirelli Stadium, they have won each of their last three with victories at Bolton, Reading and Sheffield Wednesday. They have conceded just 16 times on their travels which is joint-seventh best in the division.

Four of the last five for Albion have gone over 2.5 goals with four of their last seven seeing both teams find the back of the net. Tom Naylor has netted in their last two away matches while Lloyd Dyer has two in three on the road.

Burton Albion Team News

Matty Lund (illness), Willie Miller (unknown)) are doubts while Liam Boyce (cruciate) is a long-term absentee.
