Burton Albion Preview – Can Albion pick up first league win in seven?

Burton Albion were quick out of the blocks at the start of this season, winning their opening three League One matches of the campaign. They raced to the top after victories over Shrewsbury Town, Ipswich Town and Sunderland.

However, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s troops have been in poor form of late, losing three and drawing three of their following six in the league. The Brewers have crashed to back-to-back defeats since three consecutive draws, which has seen them slip down to 15th in the League One table.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1659 GMT, Monday 27 September)

Burton will be desperate to get back to winning ways in midweek, especially as they have two tough away games directly after. The bookies are pricing the home win at 15/8.

Portsmouth Preview – Can Pompey return to Hampshire with all three points?

Danny Cowley’s Portsmouth remain one of the promotion favourites despite their indifferent start. Pompey have won three, drawn three and lost three of nine League One games.

Just like Burton, Portsmouth won their opening three before losing three and drawing three of their subsequent six. However, after three straight losses, Cowley’s troops have bounced back with draws against Plymouth Argyle and Charlton Athletic. The Hampshire club are in tenth spot with 12 points to their name.

These two went head-to-head at the Pirelli almost a year ago to the day, with Pompey running out 4-2 winners at the Pirelli. It was an excellent away performance, with Marcus Harness helping himself to an impressive hat-trick. Burton got revenge in the reverse fixture at Fratton Park, though, as goals from Mike Fondop-Talom and Joe Powell earned the Brewers a 2-1 victory.
