Our football match prediction:
Bristol City did well to hold league leaders Newcastle to a 2-2 draw at St. James’ Park at the weekend, but they could have picked up all three points from Saturday’s football match. The Robins dropped a two-goal advantage in their last league fixture, but they produced a prosing performance against the Magpies and that is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Burton Albion. Both sides are sitting in the danger zone ahead of Matchday 35 and we predict that both teams will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash. The Brewers have found their form of late and they suffered only one loss in previous five league fixtures. The newcomers are definitely capable of spoiling Bristol City’s party at Ashton Gate Stadium and, taking everything into account, the two teams are likely to share the spoils on Matchday 35. In their first ever meeting in the Championship (earlier this season) the Robins emerged triumphant.
Highlighted Player (Korey Smith):
After spending his youth career at Norwich City, Korey Smith made his first-team debut for the Canaries in January 2008 in the FA Cup clash against Charlton Athletic. Smith played 67 league games for Norwich City and he scored 4 goals for the club, but in 2013 he signed a two-year deal with Oldham Athletic. The midfielder who was born on 31 January, 1991, scored one goal in 42 appearances for the club in the 2013/2014 campaign and on 27 June, 2014, he joined Bristol City for an undisclosed fee. It has to be noted that he won Johnstone’s Paint Trophy with the Robins in his first season with the team. Korey Smith was born in Hatfield, England and he has two younger sisters, Alice and Harriet. Smith is a defensive midfielder, but he is capable of operating as central midfielder and right back as well. The Bristol City footballer also represented the likes of Barnsley and Yeovil Town (on loan) in the past.
Highlighted Team (Burton Albion):
Burton Albion are one of the four clubs that secure promotion to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. The Brewers welcome their rivals at Pirelli Stadium, the venue that was opened in 2005. The capacity of the stadium is 6,912, while the seating capacity of the venue is 2,034. Burton Albion won the FA Trophy in 1987, with the team winning Football League Two in 2015. During the club’s non-League period, the Brewers’ local rivals were Nuneaton Borough, Tamworth, Stafford Rangers and Gresley Rovers, but while they were playing in the Football League the club’s rivals were Crewe, Port Vale, Notts County and Chesterfield. Derby County are considered Burton Albion’s rivals as well, but the rivalry with the Rams is rather friendly. The colour of Burton Albion’s home kit is black and yellow, while they wear white and grey jerseys on the travels.
