Burton Preview – Can the Brewers find a win?

The home record of Burton in League One action this season sits at W3 D2 L1.

But they don’t have a great deal of momentum going for them at the moment.

It’s been one victory for them in their last four at home (D2 L1).

In the match outright for football betting, the victory for Burton is at a quote of 5/6 so the bookies expect them to prevail* (odds recorded 20:31 GMT October 12th 2021).

Each of the three wins that Burton have claimed at home this season have been against teams currently in the top fourteen.

Friday night’s opponents Morecambe are sitting in 13th place.

Our betting prediction:
Burton 1 Goal Margin Win

Bet at William Hill

* (odds recorded 20:31 GMT October 12th 2021)


There has been another trend for Burton’s results at home this season.

All three of their wins have been earned by a one-goal margin only.

The Burton to win by a 1 goal margin for football betting on Friday comes in at a quote of 14/5* (odds recorded 20:31 GMT October 12th 2021).

This is the first league meeting between the two clubs since a League Two clash in 2015.

Each of the last four meetings in the league have actually been won by the away side on the day.

Can Burton buck the trend?


Morecambe Preview – Can the Shrimpers take the points?

It has been a season that has lacked consistency from Morecambe in League Two.

They have not managed to earn back to back wins in this campaign.

It is a W4 D2 L5 overall record that they have taken, but away from home, it is only W1 D1 L3.

They got off the mark away from home with a 3-1 win at Crewe in their penultimate road fixture.

The really big issue for the Shrimpers has been some defensive weakness on the road.

They have conceded at an average of two goals per away game in this campaign.

In that record, they failed to score in a loss at Doncaster who are bottom of the table.

In the match outright Morecambe are a quote of 16/5 for the win* (odds recorded 20:31 GMT October 12th 2021).
