Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Burton welcome Chippenham to their Pirelli Stadium in a highly-anticipated FA Cup game. The Brewers are not enjoying a season to remember, with the team sitting in the League One relegation zone after 19 rounds, but they did well to hold league leaders Plymouth to a draw at the weekend. Since there are no fresh injury worries in the home team, Victor Adeboyejo will continue to lead the line for the hosts.
Chippenham, on the other hand, defeated Lincoln in the FA Cup round 1, but they face an uphill task in Sunday’s clash. Given Burton’s display in the draw with the Pilgrims, we predict that the home side will advance to the next round. Head coach Gary Horgan is widely expected to make changes to the starting XI that suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Havant and W in the last league match.
Highlighted Player (Sam Winnall):
Sam Winnall began his professional career at the age of 19. The striker, who was born on 19 January, 1991, made his Wolverhampton debut in May 2009 and he has been playing for a number of English clubs ever since.
He was on loan at Burton Albion, Hereford United, Inverness CT and Shrewsbury Town and in the 2013/2014 campaign he signed a contract with Scunthorpe United. Sam Winnall scored 23 goals in 45 appearances for the club and, as a result, secured a lucrative move to Barnsley in 2014. He went on to score his first goal for Barnsley on 23 August 2014 in a 4-1 win over Gillingham.
Winnall helped Barnsley eliminate Walsall in the 2015/2016 League One semis as he scored a brace in the first leg. It has to be noted that he scored 23 goals in the English second tier in the 2015/2016 season. He provided 8 assists for his teammates during the season and he finished the campaign as the third highest goalscorer in the league, just behind Nicky Ajose and Will Grigg.
