Our prediction for this League 1 match:
The Cherry Red Records Stadium will host midweek fixture between AFC Wimbledon and Burton Albion. AFC Wimbledon desperately needed a win against Peterborough United, and they managed to get one. The Dons put an end to their three-game winless run in the League One, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to avoid relegation to the League Two. Max Sanders, who picked up a hamstring injury in the 1-0 win over the Posh, is unlikely to be risked against Burton Albion.
As for the Brewers, they shared the spoils with Accrington Stanley at the weekend. Burton are still in the race for a place in the play-offs, and the fact that they outplayed Bolton 4-3 in their last away game in the League One is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Kingston upon Thames. Both teams are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesday’s football match; therefore, both teams to score bet should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Scott Wagstaff):
Scott Wagstaff is a Charlton Athletic product who plays for AFC Wimbledon as a midfielder. Born in Maidstone, England on March 31, 1990 the 178-cm tall scored 17 goals in 120 appearances for the Charlton senior team, before spending several seasons on loan at the likes of Bournemouth Nortwich Victoria and Leyton Orient.
In the 2013/2014 season the English footballer signed for Bristol City, penning a three-year deal with the Robins. After netting 8 goals in 72 appearances in the league for the club, Scott Wagstaff moved to Gillingham in the 2016/2017 season, signing a two-year deal with the League One side. The 178-cm-tall midfielder was released by the club chiefs in the summer of 2018.
Scott Wagstaff, who has yet to make his debut with the England national team, current plays for AFC Wimbledon in the League One. His main position is right midfield, but he is used as both central and left midfielder as well.
Highlighted Team (Burton):
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.
