Burton Albion Preview – In-form Brewers to keep unbeaten run going?

Burton Albion were in dire straits at the end of 2020, picking up just two wins under previous manager Jake Buxton. However, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink – who was previously in charge at the Pirelli Stadium from 2014 to 2015 – has done a remarkable job in Staffordshire since returning in early January.

Burton are one of the form teams in League One right now, winning 12 of their 20 games under their new boss. Before last weekend’s 1-1 home draw with Plymouth Argyle, the Brewers had won three in a row.

Our betting prediction:
1-1 Draw

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1440 GMT, Monday 19 April)

Hasselbaink has taken Burton from the very bottom of League One up to 17th. Albion are now 12 points clear of the bottom four with five matches left to play. It has been a remarkable turnaround, and they will fancy their chances of upsetting Lincoln on Tuesday.

Lincoln City Preview – Can the Imps make it three victories on the trot?

Michael Appleton’s Lincoln City have had a fine season in League One up until now. They are currently in fourth spot with 69 points to their name, winning exactly half of their 40 league fixtures.

Lincoln recently went six games without a win, drawing three and losing three, which hindered their play-off hopes. However, City have got right back on track with seven points from the last three, beating MK Dons 4-0 and Bristol Rovers 1-0 in their previous two games.

First and foremost, Lincoln will want to nail down a play-off spot before thinking about the top two. At present, they are four points above seventh-place Portsmouth, who have played a game more. Can the Imps make it three wins on the spin with a vital victory at Burton in midweek?


Burton Albion vs Lincoln City Betting Advice

Lincoln wiped the floor with a sorry Burton side when the pair locked horns at Sincil Bank on Boxing Day. Goals from Brennan Johnson (2), Ramirez Howarth, Anthony Scully and Harry Anderson gave City a comfortable 5-1 home victory. Last season, Lincoln did the double over Burton.


Key Facts – Burton Albion vs Lincoln City Betting Tip

  • Lincoln have won the last three meetings
  • Burton have won 12 of 20 League One games since Hasselbaink rejoined the club
  • The Imps have taken seven points from the last nine on offer


Since starting his second reign at the club with a 5-1 home loss to Oxford United in early January, Hasselbaink has made the Brewers very tough to beat. Promotion-chasing Lincoln will be after all three points at the Pirelli, but we fancy the hosts to hold them to a frustrating draw (23/10).

Kane Hemmings has been Burton’s main man this term, scoring 13 times. The 30-year-old is the 7/4 favourite to open the scoring in this one.
