Prediction: Burton Albion vs Cheltenham Town – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Burton Albion will advance to the top of League One if they can beat it City of Cheltenham on Friday night.

The guests are now traveling to the Pirelli Stadium after collecting four points from as many games since their promotion to the third division.


Prediction for this match

Given how Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink Burton turned in the second half of last season, few people will be surprised to see the Brewers at the right end of the table.

Still, moving into first place would be a formidable feat for the Dutchman and his squad, just 29 games after his appointment in early 2021.

First and foremost, Burton will have to give an answer to their 3-0 loss at Cambridge United on Saturday, a result that can be traced back to beating promotion rivals Sunderland.

However, Hasselbaink will be grateful that he has almost a week to prepare for this competition so that he can keep working with a vastly changed group of players.

The only downside to their campaign is that they only score four goals in as many games, with none of those teams contributing more than one goal.

Cheltenham, 13 places behind their hosts in the table, have scored two more goals than their hosts since returning to League One.

Having the division’s worst defense record will frustrate the manager Michael Duff, but he will have little to complain about from a hectic start to the campaign.

Their only success came against the title favorites Ipswich Town in the preseason, while Cheltenham earned a place in the third round of the EFL Cup after negotiations with Bristol Rovers and Gillingham.

Callum Wright was a huge success on his second loan from Leicester City and has already contributed two goals and one assist from midfield.

Tom O’Connor is likely to miss Burton after suffering an Achilles tendon injury early in the game at Cambridge.

After Hasselbaink was impressed by Cameron Borthwick-JacksonThe left-back could continue to represent O’Connor in midfield.

Despite being disappointed with the Abbey Stadium performance, Hasselbaink may be willing to stick with the other 10 players.

After making a number of changes for the EFL Cup, Duff could return to the team that lost 3-2 in Fleetwood Town last week.

However, Ellis Chapman and George Lloyd both gave good reports of themselves on Tuesday night at Gillingham, which robbed them both of a chance.

Burton Albion possible starting line-up:
Garratt; Brayford, Shaughnessy, Leck, Hamer; Mancienne, Borthwick-Jackson; Smith, Powell, Akins; Patrick

Cheltenham Town possible starting line-up:
Flinders; Raglan, tozer, boyle; Lange, Wright, Thomas, Sercombe, Hussey; May, Williams

Probability: Burton Albion 2-1 Cheltenham Town

Burton was already the favorite for this competition before Cheltenham gave a brief turnaround after the EFL Cup.

With this in mind, we have to support the home side in order to outlast their opponents for over 90 minutes.
