Burton Albion vs Salford City Betting Tips – Emirates FA Cup, 19th November 19.45pm

EFL League One Burton Albion welcome EFL League Two Salford City to the Pirelli Stadium this Tuesday for an Emirates FA Cup first round replay. There was nothing to split the pair at Moor Lane, with Salford holding the third-tier outfit to a 1-1 draw. Still, Nigel Clough’s Albion head into this home tie as the odds-on favourites to get the win. Who will book their spot in the second round of the FA Cup in midweek?

Burton Albion News and Form – Brewers to make home advantage count?

Nigel Clough’s Burton Albion currently occupy 15th place in the League One table at the moment. The Brewers have had a mixed bag of results to this point, winning five, drawing five and losing four of their opening 14 league games.

Burton have been excellent on the road, but Clough’s boys have struggled for consistency at the Pirelli this term. Albion have won two, drawn two and lost two of six home league fixtures, with only bottom club Southend United picking up fewer home points in League One.

Burton were in the EFL Championship not so long ago and getting back to the second tier of English football will be number one priority for the Staffordshire club. Having said that, Albion have had some memorable cup runs in recent years, and they could benefit from a solid run in the FA Cup this season.

Burton Albion vs Salford City Head to Head

The FA Cup game at Moor Lane earlier in the month was the first ever matchup between the two sides. Burton dominated the ball, and Scott Fraser’s late goal looked to have put them in round two. However, just five minutes after that, Richie Towell’s stunning equaliser earned a replay for Alexander’s Salford.


Key-Facts – Burton Albion vs Salford City

  • Burton have won only one of their last five at home
  • Salford have won three in a row on the road
  • City have picked up four wins from their past seven League Two games


Salford City News and Form – Can the Ammies cause an upset at the Pirelli?

Salford City are beginning to enjoy life in the Football League. The Ammies, who were promoted to League Two for the first time at the end of last season, have moved up to 12th after winning four of their past seven. However, they were beaten 3-2 at home by Swindon Town last Saturday.

Graham Alexander’s boys have been superb away from Moor Lane of late, winning four of their last five league and cup away matches. In fact, since joining the Football League, Salford have won three, drawn three and lost three of their nine League Two fixtures on the road, with only Swindon, Forest Green Rovers, Crewe Alexandra and Mansfield Town picking up more away points thus far.

City more than matched Burton when the two teams met at Moor Lane recently, and we could be in for another close encounter between the pair on Tuesday.

Burton Albion vs Salford City Predictions

Salford City win: The Ammies may ply their trade in a league lower than Burton, but City matched them when they met at Moor Lane. Albion had 62% possession but both teams had over ten shots each on goal. Overall, the draw was just about the right result.

Salford struggled to adapt to life in League Two in the early weeks of the season, but Alexander’s troops have settled in nicely now. This cup tie will be another stern test for this evolving team, but I fancy Salford to cause an upset at the Pirelli on Tuesday.

The away win is generously priced at 11/2. With this one also expected to be close, a solitary goal could be enough to nick it. Salford to win by one is available at 13/2.
