Our football match prediction:
Millwall were more than fortunate not to suffer a loss to Cardiff City at the weekend as the Bluebirds failed to turn their dominance into goals, but the Lions were not capable of grabbing something from Tuesday’s football match against Sheffield Wednesday. The capital club aim to get back on course and they are definitely capable of beating out-of-sorts Burton Albion in front of home fans. Millwall are eyeing their fifth home win of the season and we predict that they will give fans some cheer this weekend. The Brewers have been struggling at the back of late and seeing that they suffered six losses in last seven league fixtures, we are positive that Nigel Clough’s men are going to return home empty-handed. When the two teams met in League One last year Millwall recorded a 2-0 win over Burton at the Den and you should bear in mind that the two teams meet for the first time ever in the Championship.
Highligted Player (Calum Butcher):
Calum Butcher s an English midfielder, who was born in Rochford on February 26, 1991. Butcher played for the youth teams of Ipswich Town, Southend United and Tottenham Hotspur and despite being a Spurs player he did not see any game action at senior level during his spell with the White Hart Lane outfit. The 185-cm-tall midfielder, though, was named as a substitute for Spurs in a 1-1 draw with Shakhstar Donetsk in the UEFA Cup back in 2009. Butcher played for the likes of Barnet (loan), Hjorring, Hayes & Yeading United, Dundee United and Burton Albion in the past before joining Millwall on August 25, 2016. He made his debut for the Lions two days after signing for the club, coming as a substitute in a 3-1 victory over Chesterfield. Butcher scored his first goal for Milwall against Northampton on October 15, 2016. It has to be noted that the midfielder scored two goals in 32 appearances for the Lions in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign.
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.
